Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenge

It's Papertrey Ink's 9th Anniversary, with lots of fun challenges posted for the next two weeks!  I decided to play along with Day #2's challenge...to choose an item of clothing online and make a card inspired by it.  With Valentine's Day coming up, I searched for hearts and found this adorable sweater from Talbot's...


Here is my card, using the Pedal Pusher stamp set...




I stamped the bike in Versamark and heat embossed it in white.  The hearts are cut with dies from Love Lives Here (the centers of the butterfly and house dies).  I love the color combination of navy, white, and Berry Sorbet (with a little silver thrown in :)!)




I used Narelle's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for inspiration.  I tweeked the sizes a little bit to fit the size of my bike :)
Hope to play along more this week!  Started a new job AND am taking a college class, so sadly, I have not had much time for stamping lately.  I hope I don't get too rusty!!  I tried to make a last minute birthday tag on Friday and the results were disastrous!

PS...that sweater MAY be on its way to my closet as we speak,  just saying :)!

I am stopping by to say hi, Kelly and I've always enjoyed your work.
It's been a very long time, but you continue to create lovely cards.
This bike/heart card is no exception.
