Created this card with a Tandem Bike/Flower/Summer theme. Added a lot of detail. Used Cricut cartridge Sweethearts to make the Tandem Bike w/ basket & floral bouquets. Made the bike a Tandem Bike because my hubby & I enjoy riding our Tandem Bike. Our Tandem Bike is black. I never learned to ride a regular bike and I'm not going to learn. Some may know that I can pilot a single engine plane but I cannot ride a regular bike. Added a basket made using Kraft cardstock and added floral bouquets. Used Stampin' Up Cloudy Day embossing folder. Used Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Stamped Paper Smooches Tree that I paper pieced. Stamped PS sentiment "Welcome Summer" and "thanks." Stamped crafts meow sentiment "I've got your back." Recycled part of a Kleenex tissue box for the flowers cut out & placed in the lower left corner.
