Spring Bicycle Ride

When I saw the latest challenge over at Moving Along With The Times I decided to join in with the fun - the challenge is to follow the sketch and if you want, to share one of your first cards.

This is my card following the sketch, I have used papers and a topper from the Spring Bringer card kit from The Hobby House.


I have layered my topper onto a die cut scalloped circle and used a sentiment from Craftwork Cards. The flower is a Marianne Creatables die, the button and twine are from my stash.


This is the first ever card that I posted on my blog back in April 2011


I was quite surprised when I looked back and saw that I had started my blog in April 2011 so I decided to put a little Candy package together for all of my fabulous friends and followers, you can find it HERE.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Moving Along With the Times Challenge - CASE the Sketch
A Creative Romance Challenge - Spring Flowers
Alphabet Challenge - D for Diecuts
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge 187 - Spring
Crafts and Me Challenge 146 - Anything Goes

Wow, this is so cute, such a lovely "spring"card, when I see this bike I became sad, mine was stolen last week. But, I am healthy and that is more important;)
Love the other card too, the one you've started your blog with.

This is so petty. The angled DP look fab and love how the inside is the reverse!
I think it is neat that you used a circle die for you first card ever and also for this card. The fancy circle die is so pretty and frames your wonderful image so nicely.
