Bella Spotted Biking

I made this card for the Bella-riffic Friday blog. The challenge this time is anything "Fun" and this is the first stamp that popped into my head. If that doesn't look fun, then I don't know what it. Actually, the image reminds me of when we went to Newport, CT (such a pretty town) and we saw ladies riding bikes with their little puppies in baskets, just like this! It was so neat to see IRL! I know...I'm a sheltered Canadian.  :)

The layout is from the sketch challenge on Splitcoast, SC208

The image, I-wish-I-looked-so-good-on-a-bike-aBella (really...that's the name Em gave it!) from Stamping Bella was stamped with Memento Black onto Gina K pure luxury and coloured with copics. I dotted some of the flower centers with my white gel pen. To make the road I drew a straight line with a fine black marker and a ruler, then I shaded it with W3. Ok, I really do wish I looked this good on a bike! 
The image was cut out with rectangle nesties and layered onto a chocolate scalloped piece. The floral embellishment are layered Primas and an SU rhinestone brad...simple!

The card base is Gina K 120lb pure luxury white...I can't seem to make a card base with anything else lately, it's sooooooooo sturdy. Seriously, if you don't have any you need to run over to Gina's site and order some...I LOVE it! The dotted paper is from We R Memory Keepers White Out line and it's layered onto chocolate. 

The center panel is Baja Blue layered on chocolate and I stitched around the edge with my Janome Sew Mini. 

So grab your stamps and make something FUN! There's still time to participate in the Fun challenge on the Bella-riffic Friday blog. Can't wait to see what theme Shannan comes up with for next week.  

Thanks for stopping by!
