For My Bicycle Guy

My husband is really into bicycles and he just got a brand-new one. Since his birthday is next week, I knew I had to dig up any bicycle stamp I had for his card. By omitting the basket and flowers from the Time for You bike image, I managed to create a masculine card with this retired set.

This card uses Beate’s Weekend Sketch #94 and some of the wonderful sheets from the Nouveau Chic Designer Series Paper collection.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Very good. I never would have thought the bike from that retired set could look masculine.
