Both are fine. :) It depends on the context though. You can read that two ways: 1) Someone else came up with an idea or plan which you find stupid or annoying, perhaps your boss or the government. It wasn’t your idea, you don’t like it but you’ll have to make do with it. The emphasis lies on "wir". 2) You want to back up a statement. You didn’t make up what you just said. The following facts or figures prove that… The emphasis lies on "ausgedacht".
