Are we really 1/2 way through August already??? Where on earth has this year gone?? It seems like we were counting down to the wedding then the Olympics and now Nicole and Ben are on their honeymoon and the Olympics are OVER :-( I am having serious withdrawal symptoms since the closing ceremony on Sunday. I wasn't watching the games all the time but it was always on in the background and the coverage was excellent and made it as exciting as it was. Now all we have to look forward to is the X Factor this weekend hmph!
It's mid month reminder of August's Summer Fun Challenge and I decided to make a card using
On Your Bike Robin wondering who I could give it to. I am behind with my birthday cards but only by a couple of months ;-D My dilemma? The person I have in mind for this one...I think I may have already used this image on a card for her. Give it to someone else I hear you say...I suppose I could but I had her in mind and I can't see anyone else receiving it even if she's already got a similar one lol. Think I might have to start making a note of who gets what but then that's something called 'organized'!!
Anywho, here's my card....
As always Robyn is stamped and coloured with my Copics then cut out with a Nestie. Funny thing is when I found the other card in Robyn's file on my computer I noticed I used the same Nestie as well doh! Again I traced around the same die I used for the image and hand cut it to get a mount that wasn't too big. I finally used my new Die-namics corner dies though it's slightly hidden by the image but they are so fun and I'll be using them more often.
I added Glossy Accents to the bike and nailheads to the screws on the wheels for a bit of interest. The clouds were made using a die cut of a cloud for a stencil, ink pad and sponge.
Khaki Swarovski crystals were added to the center of the felt flower and peeking out is 'friends' stamped and punched out using Stampin' Up! Tiny Tags set.
A little peek at the inside.
