Freshly Made Sketches 170

Today is hot, sunny and a perfect summer's day and alas... also the last day of the school holidays, so it's back to work tomorrow. So, as a final holiday act, I played with Freshly Made Sketches' latest sketch.

Although I use DSP quite a lot when I scrapbook, when I make cards I tend to go for lots of clean space and seldom use patterned paper. However, yesterday I picked up an order from my Stampin' Up demonstrator (Christmas spoils) and included in it was the Best Day Ever DSP pack and some Coastal Cabana. They seemed so summery and so enticing that I decided to get out of the comfort zone and see what happened.

I cut two bikes and stacked them to give a bit more depth and a hint of shadow in places. I coloured all the cut edges with Early Espresso to give more definition. I really like the button and bow on the front wheel.  I like this card and know exactly who to give it to.

Card: Coastal Cabana, Best Day Ever DSP.
Stamps: Clearly Besotted Good Times
Ink: Soft Suede, Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral
Other: Good Times die, Coastal Cabana ribbon and button, Linen twine, Dimensionals to lift bike and one set of butterflies, Early Espresso marker.
