Enjoy the Ride

Hi Everyone! Today I want to share a card with you that was just featured in the CARDS blog. You can see it HERE. The challenge was to use woodgrain so I picked up my favorite Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain stamp and added it as a backdrop to my little bicycle scene.

The clouds are scallop punches, cut roughly in half and then distressed with light blue chalk ink. I got this idea from Betsy Veldman. She used her scallop pieces to mask. Genius!

The bike and sentiment are from Everyday Button Bits. I gently curved the sentiment then cut the banner around it to fit. I also used the Rickrack die to make the grass and added some black stitching to finish it off.

All paper and buttons are Papertrey ink.

Hope you have a great day!
