This card is for my dear friend Heide. We had such a good time on her birthday with the rest of the gals from our stamping club. We all spent the day at the StampScrapArtTour rubber stamping show - spending up a storm on new stamps, embellishments and gotta have "toys". It was such fun! And to top it off, I ended up winning a $100 gift certificate at the show! I couldn't believe it -- and of course I didn't have any trouble spending it either, LOL!
For this card I used a new stamp from Hero Arts. I really like this bicycle stamp. I inked it up using my Stampin' Up markers in Mambo Melon, Soft Suede, Black and Razzleberry. I added a touch of Curry on the pedal gear and the basket.
In the basket, I thought it would be cute to fill it with flowers so I used my Flower Soft "Spring" and it really makes it pop. From there the image was cut out using my Spellbinders Labels 4 dies. The background paper is Basic Grey "Green at Heart" and the cardstock used is Soft Suede and Melon Mambo also from Stampin' Up. I just added some free-hand doodles with a white gel pen around the soft suede image panel - an idea I picked up from the stamp show we were at today.
So that's it at the end of a wonderful day with my dear stamping friends and BFF Heide on her birthday.
Thanks a bunch for stopping in and visiting my blog today. Let me know what you think...
