As kids, my cousin and I loved going for long bike rides together when we visited my grandmother's house. This beautiful image from Elisabeth Bell brings back those fond memories. We would pedal up and down dirt roads for hours chatting and looking for hills to fly down. I doubt I could even ride a bike now!
I don't often use flowers on my card, but I love the depth they create. You can really see it from the side.
I decided to play along with the color challenge at the Belles n Whistles blog. The colors were red, yellow, and blue.
To put my card together I used one of the sketches from Sketch N Stash. This week they are letting you choose from all of the sketches in their sketch catalog. They are so fantastic it was hard to choose! I ended up using sketch # 53. The sketch was a fun way to use my poor, neglected Elizabeth Bell stamp. It also encouraged me to dig out and dust off my Martha Stewart daisy punch.
I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Totally Papercrafts--"Thank you"
Simon Says Stamp Challenge--"Die cuts to die for" (I used my Martha Stewart daisy punch and my Scalloped Circle Spellbinders die)
Paper Sundaes--Felt (the red rose is made from felt)
Thanks for looking! I love your comments! :)
