Riding a Bicycle

I got this new Memory Box die the other day and just couldn't wait to make a card with it.  I decided NOT to stress myself over trying to do all the distressing, and just made more of a classic type card.  I love the black, white, and red combo so went with those colors. 


I really would love to try and ride one of these but figure I'd need the hospital alerted and also have an ambulance on stand-by!  Think it'd still be fun though.  I embossed the white panel behind the bicycle with the CB Distressing embossing folder (hey, I really DID distress on it! LOL) and the sentiment is from CTMH Memories.


The sketch I used (very literally) is from Sketch Saturday and I'll enter this in their challenge.

Thanks for stopping by...........

Wonderful CAS card. Love the colors. Thankfully, this was a bit before my time :-)

What a delightful card, Lynn! Love the color combo with just a pop of red. 30 years ago,my husband had one of these and I can assure you, they were extremely difficult to ride. Not so much the actual riding them, but getting on and off the seat presented huge problems. lol

Love the red, white and black combo. Placing the bike on the white really makes it stand out. You are more adventurous than me, I wouldn't even contemplate getting on it.

I'm having fun envisioning the emergency preparedness team waiting for you to ride, lol :) Sounds like the tactics we use when we're about to bathe a cat!
I love the classic colours, and that die is stunning!

Great card, Lynn. I also love that color combo. Your sentiment is perfect. Terrific die, but I'm with you, I'd definitely have to make a trip to the ER if I even tried to get on one of those things.

I can see you pedaling down the street on this bad boy! Now that would be a pretty picture and maybe a little distressing to Jim!
I really like the design of the card and the colors and patterns work so well together.
