Life Is a Beautiful Ride--PP293

May 1, 2016

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The amazingly talented Nance is our hostess this week!  She has an fabulous theme challenge for all of us!  May is National Bike Month in the United States so, this is the perfect challenge to start the month!  We can't wait to see what you create!  

My card is created on a white card base.  The background paper is from My Favorite Things Tranquil Textures Paper Pack using the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Die from SugarPea Designs.  The green grass is also from the same paper pack.  It is cut using the Lawn Fawn Hillside border dies.  The fence is cut from Lawn Fawn Hillside border dies.  


The bicycle is from Papertrey Inks Pedal Pushers stamp set and matching dies.  The sentiment is stamped in black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I few red enamel dots were added for fun.  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!  

Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.
