July Release-Bike Ride


Hello Friends,

  Welcome to the last day of Flourishes  Release for July 2012.  This has been a very fun release for me.  I think that the sets are unique, pretty, dramatic, and will fit the bill for many cards we create.  

  Today we are releasing Bike Ride, penned by Lauren Pope.  I think this set is really fun and will fit many ages and either male or female.  I just love all the small images that can be set into the basket.  Want a peak at the image....look now.

   The set includes the main image of the bike, five small images that can be set in the basket and four fun sentiments.  Here's a look at the full set. Isn't this the cutest thing!!!

  Here is my card for today
.
  One of my best and long time friends had a birthday this week and she got a new bike from her hubby.  So this card was a natural for her.  She has been here during my long health walk the last 6 years. She has been one of my strongest supporters and cheerleader. Just recently I had to have a PET scan and biopsy and she was there with me.  She has been with me during some very dark days, but she always brings sunlight into the room.  So Jan V., this one's for you!  Happy Birthday.

  My original idea was to do a black and white tonal card with just a burst of color...well it turn in to a grey tonal card, but I added silver Spica pen to the fenders and handle bars and in person it looks really cool.

  These are the Copics I used today
