the cyclist

Today, I have a real fun card to share with you.  I have so many Uptown images that have never seen ink, so thought best I should get at them before Emily decides to have another release, then I will be further behind.

I love this Uptown image - it speaks Spring to me, the bicycle with a basket of flowers, makes me want to get my bike out and go biking.  Last spring & summer, hubby and I would go biking about 5 nights a week for 12-15km per night, sometimes more.

Okay, so lets get on with the card - here is Uptown Girl Flora the Cyclist.  I must say I don't look like Flora when  I bike ride (but wish I did - hehe).

I based my colouring on this new paper I picked up this week by MME called Nostalgia. I actually picked up all the new MME 6x6 pads - couldn't decide which ones I really wanted So bought them all! So after I stamped Flora on bella's bestest paper, I pulled out my copics and pencils to colour her up.
Finishing touches - stitching, lots of glitter, prima flower and I used a die from Memory Box for the flourish in the corner.

Don't forget about our challenge this Friday - it's a sketch challenge, it's easy peasy, so hope you play along.  Just email Emily your card by thursday night to be on Bloggabella on Friday as well as a chance to win some bella bucks.

Thanks for coming by, see you soon...

Yup, this is a fun card. Funny, we love to ride here too. So many paralells in our lives. And we both colored this the same week! I love the pretty colors you've used along with the corner swirl and flower adornment. So beautiful.
