Enjoy Life for FMS 400(2) and Inspire Create 49

What better way to spend a miserable winter afternoon than in my craft room? Inspiration came from two places: the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, where they are into week 2 of celebrations for their 400th challenge, and the colours at Inspire. Create.

This card came together quickly. I masked off the top section of the white card front and sponged Pool Party and Mango Melody together. 

I put the whole thing, mask and all, into StamparatusTM  to stamp the grass. The mask was left in place as I just wanted the tips of the grass and not the whole width. Then I stamped in the boy on the bike using Basic Gray. Finally, I added in the 'Enjoy today' from Good Morning Magnolia. The bike and the grass is from Enjoy Life.
