Gee, Thanks!

I had some time yesterday to make another card.  I think card making is magical: it makes time pass quicker, too quickly!  It was just the opposite at the dentist's office this morning.  Today I had to hold some rinse in my mouth for the longest minute on record.  Card making time should move at that speed!

Usually inspiration pictures aren't taken literal in a design, but I loved the way these bikes looked all lined up.  I masked each bike to get the ones behind.  I held my breath each time, hoping the whole process would work out.  That great bicycle stamp is from Hero Arts, the "thanks" is part of a stamp from Studio G, and the "g" is chipboard from The Paper Studio.  The inks are Brilliance Sky Blue, Orchid, Sunflower Yellow, and Ranger Distress Spiced Marmalade.  The patterned paper is Bo Bunny Yummy Mini Dots from 2005.  I cut the flowers on my Silhouette and added a dot of white gel pen.

This card is entered in the following challenges:

Hope you have a great day!
