A Bicycle Built For Two

Today I attended a special picnic to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of one of my best friends, Beverly, at one of our local state parks.  What a wonderful occasion to celebrate and the day was perfect!!  The thought of picnics, family and love is the inspiration behind today’s card.

This card features one of the bicycle images from Sparkle N Sprinkle’s recently released stamp set, Bicycles, featuring the art of Beccy Muir.  I stamped the image and colored with alcohol markers.  The card front features two windows, cut out with various dies, with the image centered in the second window of the popped up card front.  The sentiment, included in this set, goes so perfect with this bicycle built for two.  I stamped it on a little tag die and added it with the little polka dot brad.  Full details can be found in the SNS gallery here.

Have a great weekend!!
