enjoy life

In my 35 years, if I have learned one thing it would be to enjoy the journey.  Life is short, sometimes shorter than it should be so I am hoping this card will remind someone close to me to enjoy it.  Of course a journey on this adorable ride would make anyone smile.  Isn't it too cute?

This card composition was actually really easy.  It is 4 1/2 by 5 horizontal design.  The light blue cardstock is 4 3/4 square. Over that is one of my favorite papers in the MME pack.  I measured and cut rounded corners on a 4x3 scrap.  Then a 4 1/4 x 2 3/4 yellow scrap and a 4 3/4 x 2 3/4 chevron over that.  Next I stamped and colored the scooter on a white cardstock that was 3 1/2 x 3 white cardstock.  This card was super simple so I thought I should add a little stitching.  The stitching is visible on the inside of the card but I may add a simple cardstock there and use that space to write.  Otherwise it is clean stitching so it doesn't look horrible.
