Here's To You bicycle card with CTMH Mayberry, Splendid Day, Enjoy Life

I made this card to play along with Card Pattern Sketch #118.  When I saw the sketch I thought of hills and knew I had a good sketch to use the fun bike image in our CTMH Enjoy Life set.  First I stamped the bike in Cocoa ink and then I colored in the open sections of the image with my Orange watercolor pencil.  Then I went over the bike image with Liquid Glass to give it some shine.


This card is going to my youngest to congratulate him on successfully completing Grade 3.  He loves it when I use liquid applique (hey, the stuff looks like marshmallow foam - how can you not like it?) so I used it on the leaves of the tree to give it dimension.  Here is a little better picture of that...

If you'd like to make this card, get these supplies:
Stamps:  Enjoy Life (bike), Splendid Day (tree and sentiment)
