Ack!!! Where did you find that bike die/stamp...it's fabulous!! So fun and whimsical...even more so with the colours you used to stamp it and with the sweet little butterflies fluttering out of the basket. You hit the jackpot with your patterned paper -- what an awesome paper/die combo!!! Finished off with that equally whimsical scalloped edge...card awesomeness achieved!!!

First of all.....fabulously fun and trendy! Secondly, the butterflies coming out of the basket is absolute creative genius at work! The 'stitched' scallop 'road' really works well to define the horizon and then the bike paper....well, it just rocks!!! A totally incredible creation dear friend! Wow!!!!

With your hubby's passion for bicycling, I'm sure this bike stamp and die will get LOTS of use at your house, C!! I love how you made a cloud of butterflies fly out of the bike's basket. Awesome design!

Awww, love this bike paper and die! Thank you, friend, for checking up on me! March seems to be THE MONTH for all sorts of activities ranging from a funeral (she lived a FULL 95 YEARS) to dance stuff (for my girlies). Hope to get more crafty time in soon...
