Challenge layout

I took the double take Wednesday challenge at CWC The challenge was to use 2 colors card stock, 2 patterned papers and 2 embellishments. As I so often do cards for challenges (they just are quicker for me), I decided I WAS doing a layout. Though it is not my favorite I am sure it will grow on me, after all with such cute pictures of Skyler I just can't resist it. I am not sure why the photo has a dull look to it, the layout is actually brighter?
Striped paper is from KI Memories classic print paper pad
Let's Ride from boys gone wild by Reminisce
The checkered flags were found in the MTC gallery
I cut the title with MTC. I used a ritz cracker box as chipboard and after I got it cut decided that I like it as is and did not cover it.
The tracks on the background paper were courtesy of my hubbies remote control motorcycle and a black ink pad (shhhhh it is all clean and back in it's home)
Thank you for stopping by. As always I welcome your comments and critiques.

Live the life you've imagined.
