Road to Happiness                                                                    
Here's a color challenge for ya!  Tips: 1) This stamp set is an amazing buy because it has lots of different accessories.  To stamp them inside the car and line them up just righ, create a "mask". To do this, stamp the car on the top edge of a post-it-note and cut it out. After you've stamped the car on your cardstock, cover it with the post-it-note. Now you can stamp the accessories inside the car. Remove the post-it-note and voila!  The accessories are perfectly aligned inside the car and not hanging over the sides! 2) I used the designer paper in an unusual way but cutting strips and adhering them vertically.  Since all Stampin' Up! designer paper series are coordinating it makes it easy to try.  3) The ribbon finishes the edge where the designer paper is aligned hiding any unevenness.  (HEADS UP: will be FREE during September with any order of $40. Place an online order 24/7 on my website at beginning September 1st to take advantage of this freebie!)
