Remember when.......

Happy Wednesday everyone.  I hope you are keeping warm from this terrible cold snap we are having.  It is just bitterly cold.  It's -7c today or -22c with the windchill,  and I know it is worse in other areas, but after having a fairly mild week last week, this feels like a slap in the face - ouch!

Okay so on with my card. I decided that I needed a few masucline cards in my stash so this is what I came up with.  I'm using a Beth Ful image by Stamping Bella called Remember when....

Do you remember owning a tricycle like this?  Mine was a red one with a white seat and the little platform between the two back wheels was white and I also had some streamers dangling from the handle grips - oh the memories.

So for the recipe - stamped on some watercolour paper with black versafine and then embossed it with clear embossing powders.  Cut it our using a square nestie, left the die in place and sponged some antique linen, frayed burlap, brushed corduroy, and a bit of aged mahogany. Papers are from Pink Paislee called Old School.  This stamp also comes with it's own sentiment, which I used.  I stamped it on the piece of DP that I cut out using an MFT hexagon die.

Finished off with some Bella dots.

Here are a few reminders as well - over on SCS we have our next  challenge going on right now, this challenge is 'lovey dovey' so anything romantic.  You can read all the deets here.

Also our bellariffic friday challenge - we have a sketch this week.  Play along and email your entry to Emily by thursday evening for a chance to win $20 in bella bucks.
Thanks for the visit today, see you back here on Friday for the challenge. Keep warm...brrrrrrr..

Oh, I love this. Great masculine card right down to the last detail. Personally, I love these warm colors, and I'm not even a guy.
