Take a Ride

A friend at work asked me to make a personalized birthday card for her husband -  and she said he likes to ride his bike.   So here is the design I came up with:
There's no stamping on this (Yikes!)  accept on the inside - the background panel is a piece of patterned paper from Tim Holtz - Paper Stash/Destinations.  The biker is from Salvage Stickers, the sentiment is a Small Talk Sticker and I spelled the name with Alpha Chips.  I stuck the biker sticker to a piece of black cardstock and cut it out to frame it.  I layered it to the card with foam dots.

Then the same friend asked me to make the same card for her husband's son's birthday - who also likes to bike - but there was only one biker sticker in the Salvage Stickers set - so I found another image over at The Graphics Fairy  (free vintage images!) and created this card.
I'm entering my cards in the following challenges:
Paper Players - Transportation

Curtain Call - Travel On.

Both cards are brilliant Julia, I used the first on my DH's card last year after the Tour de France started here in the UK, he still has it up so I guess he like it! He would love your card too... Hugs, Anne xx
