Happy Birthday with a darling bicycle

Good Monday Morning to you!

{Edit to add this was selected as a Top3 Pick at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges on 5/23/18}

Well we have had 10 straight days of rain and gloom. There is standing water everywhere. That did lead for me to find a few minutes to craft, since all sport activities have been cancelled. Should I have caught up on house work....YES, but did I wanna, NO!

I need some bright colors with all the gloom out my window. I selected a bicycle image from Hero Arts and stamped in a pretty pink onto my stamped cloud background which is also from Hero Arts.  I used some Spellbinders dies to cut my circle images which I layered together.

I started with some pretty patterned paper I had in my stash of scraps and added to the  card front. Next I added a length of aqua seam binding and tied in a bow which I embellished with a pink button laced with hemp twine.
I still had my roll of tickets on my desk from my previous make and stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment from DeNami Designs in the center adding a few pink hearts from Paper Smooches to the ticket. I diecut a row of hearts out of aqua felt and added to the top. Lastly I scattered a few sequins for a final finishing touch.
I am joining in the fun at Pause Dream Enjoy Photo challenge.
