I should like to rise and go…

Sharing a card featuring the fun Uptown Girl Molly Makes a Detour stamp from Stamping Bella.

The layout follows the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, I just made the circle elements a bit bigger to fit the stamp.  No resizing with a rubber stamp like you can a digi.  I also stupidly decided to go no lines, well, it looks better but with tiny spindly little arms and legs it sure is hard!  I also turned the background circle into a shaker because, well, I could and they are always fun.

I chose my stamp as I wanted to play along at AAA Cards for their current perfect day challenge.  What could be more perfect than being off on an adventure around the world taking detours to see new and interesting things?  I sure can’t think of anything; long overdue a holiday am I!

My theme also allowed me to play in the last ever challenge over at Naughty or Nice.  Sorry to see this challenge go, I didn’t get to play too often but love a bit of naughty every now and then.  Also loved the name for their last challenge so didn’t want miss it.  I’ve gone nice with this one and picked challenge #42, with the theme of on the move.

Had a lot of fun with this card and I’ve got one for the stash for a bon voyage or even maybe a retirement.
