Card Recognition

Bring on the Happy Birthday Bicycle



This week's Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge is to find inspiration in the new Paper Crafts magazine (Edited to say, I can't read, the challenge is to find inspiration from any craft magazine/online blog/etc, me and my literal issues....)  Thanks to Practicing Creativity's FB post I found Amy's awesome paper pierced bicycle card online (that solves the problem of not having a copy of this month's issue).  I've added a basket and birthday present, so I wasn't a total copy and then added a vellum sentiment for PTI's Make It Monday.  Moxie Fab World is celebrating paper piercing, is it okay to add a card that was inspired by one of the ones in the issue?

Materials: Practicing Creativity The Whole Cycle bicycle, basket and present, PTI Big Birthday wishes sentiment, Cosmo Cricket Early Riser patterned paper, Stampin Up designer paper, vellum, Making Memories red eyelets, Fiskars rotary scallop cutter, Stampin Up black ink, Versamark, white gel pen, sharpie

This so fun and cute. I keep forgetting about the little presents, they look so great stamped in the basket.

I do like this one! I've paper pieced this bike too and man oh man it's tricky, but the end result is fabulous!
