Bicycle Thanks

Hello!

I have a card to share with you... surprise, surprise!
I used Hero Arts/Sizzix Bicycle stamps and die set. Colours are SU! Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, and Old Olive.

I am most impressed with the fact that I managed to get that stamped bicycle on the card base in the correct position to fit in the die cut hole in the top panel. It's a miracle! I managed it with a little help from my Stampamajig.

My card is in response to three challenges, CASE Study #115, CAS(E) this Sketch #4, and A Blog Named Hero #15.

This week's CASE Study has had me intrigued. The muse this month is Angeline Yong, who happens to be a super-talented stamper who inspires me regularly! Her card was so superb, that I was feeling a bit intimidated.  This is Angeline's version. I went with the blues and greens, the stripes, and the die cuts.
CAS(E) this Sketch had this sketch to offer us. My interpretation is a bit loose, but I  still went with three different sized shapes focused on the bottom left corner.
And over at A Blog Named Hero, we are asked to use die cuts or punches.
Thanks for popping in to visit!

It is awesome when we impress ourselves, isn't it, Michelle? I hope you accompanied that "attagril" to yourself with a pat on your own back! (Do it a lot now, sweetheart, when you're young. I can't reach back there anymore!)

Super card and wonderful take on all the challenges!!

This is very cool. I love how you got that bicycle lined up with the die cut. I've never seen a bicycle die. Love your arrows, too.

Lovely classic card. Excellent job with the placement, too. That can be tricky :) Thanks for the inspiration.
