Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I have a card to share today using the awesome Feeling Groovy and Far Out stamp sets from The Alley Way Stamps April release.

Feeling Groovy is a 4x6" stamp set jam packed with stamps, including the very "cool dude" stamp I used today, plus an awesome VW-style camper van (I already made a card using the van stamp here).  Far Out is this month's mini (3x4") set that you receive FREE when you spend $40 or more (before shipping) at the TAWS store, and includes the girl stamp and some awesome accessory stamps that I used on today's (pattern on her dress, glasses for the guy)  The sentiment also comes from the freebie set.

I used a brand-new-to-me stencil by Studio Calico called Mister Huey's Mask - Circle Graph. I saw the amazingly talented Francine use it on a few of her cards recently, and I knew that I just had to have it! I placed the stencil directly onto the front of my 105x148mm card base and inked it with Memento London Fog using my mini ink blending tool. The groovy girl and cool dude were fussy cut out and popped up with 3D foam pads, and the sentiment simply stamped beneath them. A few Doodlebug Sprinkles, and it was done!

I was totally inspired to create this card by the amazing sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch #118.  I also followed the gorgeous colour combo at The Challenge #30.  Finally, I would like to enter this into this week's new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is Make Your Own Background.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
