I had the chance to make this fun card today using another adorable Penny Black image. This one is called Easy Rider - isn't Mimi adorable on her little lime green bike? I used this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger photo for my inspiration for the colors on my card. Looking at the cupcake liners, I noticed the pleating and thought the bicycle wheel spokes bore a little resemblance to them... a stretch maybe, but it did help me choose the image to use for my card! *wink!*
This week's SCS Friday Free for All Challenge was also an inspiration for my card, as we were asked to create a project Inspired by the Sun. My husband is an avid bicyclist and as soon as it's above 40 degrees, he's out riding his bike. I'm not quite the fan of those bike seats, or I would join him... lol!
