Bring on the Happy!


All my brother wanted for his birthday was some money for a road bike, so this was the card I made for him.  It was inspired by a picture that I recently saw on Pinterest.  It was very quick to make.  I started with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of fine linen cardstock, scored at 5 1/2".  I stamped the background with fine linen ink and the Papertrey Ink Background Basics:  Farm & Barn stamp set.


This adorable bike, by Cali Arroyo, was cut at 4.2" with my Silhouette.  Isn't the fine detail amazing?  I just trimmed off the front half of the bike.


The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Big Birthday Wishes stamp set.
