Tandem Bicycle Card

Hubby & I have a Tandem Bicycle that we ride. I cannot ride a regular bicycle. Never learned and at my age I'm not going to learn.  I tell people that even though I cannot ride a regular bicycle I can ride a Tandem and also I can pilot a single engine plane. How about that!

Used The Craft's Meow Tandem stamps on this card. When I first rcvd this stamp and stamped the sentiment I thought some of the letters 'ot yo' were not stamping properly but then I saw that the stamped image on the plastic pkg had the letters that way. 

I like using Tim Holtz Distress Inks for an inked background. On this card I used TH Distress Inks: mowed lawn & salty ocean. Allowed for dry time.

Stamped Tandem Bicycle after background dried. Stamped sentiment. Used Spellbinder for sentiment tag.

Embossed the Sky with Stampin' Up Cloudy Days embossing folder. Embossed the ground with Cuttlebug Baby's Breath embossing border.

Added stickers: Sun & Bee. Do you get that I added my nickname "Sunshine HoneyBee" ? Added stickles, ribbon & bow.
