Thank You Card Featuring Lawn Fawn Stamps

Here's a "thank you" card for A's kindergarten teacher for the end of year gift. 
I still need to decorate the bag. 


This picture shows the tires a little better. 
I think I bought that embossing pen 8 years ago and have just started using it!



The inside.  Flowers from "Cruising Through Life" set and grass from "Critters in the Burbs".







Details:
  • Stamped bicycle image on the patterned paper and a few others to cut
  • Paper pieced the bike frame, seat, and basket
  • Colored the tire black, then used an embossing pen & heat embossed it with black
  • The hearts were stamped, colored, some glittered and some have glossy accents.  There's a little masking in the basket of hearts.
  • The blue panel was embossed and distressed on the edges
  • The top panel is raised with dimensional foam
  • I am VERY happy with the results.  One of my all-time favorites!





The design was inspired by this Sketch by Lucy Abrams from the Lily Pad Cards Challenge:

Thanks for looking. 
As I see the sun shining out my window today I am reminded how blessed I am. 
My heart goes out to all affected by the tornadoes!
