Moxie Fab - I want to ride my bicycle

Well, I've been gone from Blog-Land for a long while. Went to CA for 10 days on a "Space A" trip. We actually stayed in the LA area the whole time and ended up flying home from the same place...a bit unusual, to say the least!
Anywho, I missed you all and the fabulous challenges I was eying from afar..took my laptop to keep 'connected' with everyone :O)
Had to make a Congratulations card for a friend who graduated from an on-line course she took this week. Whoot whoot!
Thought this bicycle challenge may help me find my lost mojo~man, it's tough getting back after a couple of weeks, huh?

Thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your comments!

My card~
Stamp: bicycle by PSX
Ink: initially stamped the bike with Ranger brown ink and colored over each part with glitter gel pens. The yellow flowers in the basket are dotted with Stickles. The sentiment is computer generated.
Card stock: the base is bright orange from Keepsake's Paper Pak; the print flower paper is from the front of a note card; the brown butterfly paper is American Crafts and embossed with Swiss Dot from Cuttlebug. There is an orchid butterfly on top with a jewel from The Dollar Store
Embellishments: the button brad on the front tire of the bike is from Making Memories (I think); the banner is hand drawn and cut out and the gold string attaching it to the bike is from a package of chocolate candies (which I ate :-)

  5. Helen, your card is oh so pretty especially since it is made in one of my favorite colors! Your friend shall love it!
    I have been out of the blogging world for a while waiting on the repair of my laptop. I came to a sad realization of how we have become so dependent on technology. It is a sometimes scary thing.
    Glad you had an interesting vacation. Be back soon...
