Happy Birthday To You

Hi! Welcome to my blog. The challenge this month at Just For Fun is Happy Birthday. I want to show you a birthday card I made using these fun new bicycle stamps and washi tape. These bicycles remind of the time when my young boys and I went to a plantation in Charleston, SC and rented a bicycle for two to ride through the trails. And, that reminds me of the song, "A Bicycle Built For Two!"

I stamped the Old Time Bicycle Motif stamp and the High Wheeler Bicycle Motif stamp with Versa Mark ink, added black embossing powder and heat set it. I colored the roses using Spectrum Noir markers. I cut out the images and adhered them to a green square and then to a black square. They were pop dotted to the card.

For the card background I used various washi tapes on the corners and stamped the birthday saying from the Sentiments 1 unmounted sheet.

I would love for you to join the Just for Fun Birthday challenge. You might even win a gift certificate to the store!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful and blessed day!
