Moxie Fab Bicycle


Good morning! This is the first morning of summer for me, so I decided to begin by creating a card for some challenges. I was very excited about the I Want to Ride My Bicycle challenge on Moxie Fab World. I recently purchased the Everyday Button Bits stamp set from PTI, so I knew just the bicycle to use. :) I hope you'll play along with this challenge, too...what a great theme with which to start summer. :)
I used CPS Sketch 67 for this card; it's such a great sketch!! I used a Berry Sorbet card base, and added two Lemon tart pieces to the top and bottom. I embossed those Lemon Tart pieces with the Sunshine embossing plate from PTI. I layered some Berry Sorbet Ribbon and Buttons onto that. For the focal image, I stamped my bicycle in black onto white cardstock. I colored selected areas with a black Koh-i-noor pencil, and I painted the rest using a coral SU Watercolor Wonder Crayon. The black buttons were added on and accented with Silver Rhinestones. I think they kind of look like spoke decorations. :) I stamped the sentiment in Berry Sorbet. Two pieces of Swiss Dot Lemon Tart Ribbon accent the side.
I hope you have a fabulous day! Thanks so much for stopping by, and don't forget to enter our sketch challenge!!

I love how you used the bicycle on this card. I have this set and have never inked up the bike, I'm always at a loss with it!! I'm going to have to give it a try!! The rhinestones on the wheels are just the icing on the cake, what a great touch :)
