Out for a Bike Ride!

Ha not me... don't even own a bike, but I love Rosalie's bicycle. I think it is wonderful with her two baskets!

This card is for this weeks Sarah Kay Challenge Blog. A wonderful sketch this week. I do hope you get a chance to play with us at the site.

For my card I colored Rosalie and her bike with my Copics and white gel pen in colors to match paper from K&Company. And I had to color her puppy as a border collie... oh how I wish my baby Bonnie was still a puppy!

I matted her with the gorgeous teal blue/green Bazzil card stock and inked the edges to give a distressed feel. For my scallops to follow the sketch I wanted the larger scallops so I used my Fiskar's medium Circle squeeze punch and punched six circles. I drew a line on the back of my plaid band 1/2 the size of the circles and then attached the circles in a straight line across the top and bottom. The line really helps to make sure that the scallops are even across the edge and look like one piece of paper.

I inked them and the base and large pattern paper as well. I then found the exact same shade of thread in my box and sewed down everything. For just a bit of bling I added the four dew drops to the whole scallops. I did not use a sentiment, that way I can use it for anything later.

Do take the time to go and visit the Sarah Kay Challenge Blog, the DT work is so pretty this week! Love these ladies work!

Off to Sunday Breakfast with the local gang... then to my Sunday chores! Hope you have a wonderful day, enjoy some outside time, and then inside time crafting!
