Several Challenges in One

This card is being submitted to several challenges: WT283, Shabby Tea Room #22, Craft Your Days Away #1 and Party Time Tuesdays #11 (PTT). I used several embellisments and all seem to come together quite nicely. One is to use buttons, another to "reflect" (I thought of reflecting as in a slower time), another to use your favorite things and another a birthday card (thought of "Enjoy the ride" here). This card was fun to make and I didn't realize just how many different things I had used on it until trying to describe it here. The clouds were die cut from white felt and have Star Dust Stickles outlining the edges. The smaller cloud was raised on foam adhesive. A cute tiny pink sheer ribbon grace the handlebars. Glossy soft pink "Tiles" were used as the tires with black buttons and light pink floss. The little butterflies (with tiny self adhesive pearls) are grabbed all the time as this is my favorite thing to use and were randomly placed. A double scallop border of Pretty in Pink (with white Gel pen dots) and layered on the black scallop piece and was placed on the bottom. A small strip of black and white checkered ribbon graced the top edge of the border piece. I love this sentiment for a birthday card and the little bike reminds me of slow, easy days gone by. The little black/white ribbon is a tiny bit "bumpy" due to the mini glue dots but is not as wrinkly or tacky looking as it appears here. Hope you like it.
