Bicycle Themed Wedding Card

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well and enjoyed the Easter weekend.   It was a beautiful day here yesterday, sunny and warm enough to sit out on the back deck.  Today it's raining and so I will play in my craft room for a change.

I have a different card to show today.   A couple that we bicycle with recently married and we thought it would be fun to give them a cycle theme wedding card.   We were heading to a bike show the day we gave it to them with a wedding gift so it was well received :)



I realize that this is not my usual vibrant colour scheme and I did not create the background.  I used paper from a Heartfelt Creations collection that I've stashed away to use for a travel album.  I cut out a piece that had a vintage bicycle image.  I stamped congratulations and created flowers and flourishes using die cuts.  I coloured the flowers with Distress ink to co-ordinate with the paper.  I added Wink of Stella and the hearts to the wheel centres.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
Shirley

  12. I love your bicycle card Shirley and the pretty flowers and flourishes and lattice heart go beautifully and the HC background suits it perfectly, and the little hearts on the wheel hubs are a great idea. A wonderful wedding card for your biking friends. Glad you had a good Easter and the weather was warm. I think our weather has some way to go before we do much sitting outside...lol. x

  18. Hello, Just saw your link at Gerrina's, and able to click and pop over to see what you're up to. What a beautifully unique way to use this bicycle, and I chuckled when you said you didn't create the background. You've made this fab paper design all your very own, by the way you've embellished the card & personalized it for your biking friends. I would never 'see' that in the paper, so Kudoes to you, even if you didn't create the bkground. It's a beautifully done card! TFS & Hugs.
