PDX Keeping Portland (Oregon) Weird!

So I was chatting with Justin the other day, and Hero Arts has these amazing city stamp sets by Clearly Kelly! Well, one thing led to another and bam! After I saw his card, I knew I had to case it! Most of you who know me, know that I don't case... except in rare occasions!
He's version was going to be posted on Friday, here we are...
I really loved how each of our cards has lots of wonderful on it!
There is a link near the end of my post to Justin's blog!
This is the craziest thing I've done all week... 

Okay on to the card...
Like I said before, the stamp set I am using today is Clearly Kelly from Hero Arts.
There is the Fremont Bridge, a bike lane stamp, of course, the super cool coffee and donut! The there is a food truck! Each summer the city of Portland has a ton of food trucks with the best in the NW has to offer!  Topped off with an awesome PNW (Pacific NorthWest) is best stamp! I also cased the stamp in the background (which you can hardly see now) and since I didn't have a stamp die or punch... I created my own, I cut a 2 1/4 square piece of woodgrain cardstock and marked a 1/4 from each edge, and used my hole punch to create a stamp like shape. :) I was very proud of it!lol
I've done the mix of cardstock, chipboard, and vellum for my stamped images.
This set is fantastic, and it has everything PDX'y folks love!
