Trendy Bicycle

Hi there! Practicing Creativity Designs is hosting a super fun sketch challenge with a FABULOUS prize package (THREE FREE STAMP SETS!!! WOW!)! I absolutely LOVE their stamps, so I just HAD to play along!!!

Here's the sketch:

And here's my creation:

I actually used three different Practicing Creativity Designs stamp sets to make this card: The Whole Cycle, For the Love of Dots, and Chatterbox (for the sentiment inside the card---see photo below).

I used patterned paper from GCD's Homespun Chic Collection (Melody Ross) for the striped background panel and to paper piece parts of the bicycle!! I'm going to give this card to my friend, Rosemarie---her birthday is tomorrow! She's such a fun and funky person, and I could TOTALLY see her owning a bicycle that looks just like this!! Too cute! Here's a closer look:

So...what do you think?

Great job on the paper piercing, I've done it once with that fab Whole Cycle bicycle and while I loved it, I'm not sure I'm up to the challenge again.
