Birthday Bicycle Card

Birthday Bicycle Card with Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Typography CD

Hello, Friends!  I have such a fun card to share with you today!  It seems I never have enough birthday cards, no matter how many I make.  So I recently went to work making some with my Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Typography CD, and pretty papers from our Jumbo Halloween download.  Yes, you read correctly… I used Halloween papers to make this pretty spring birthday card!  Take a look:

The “Star Rider” image is from the Typography CD, and prints out in black and white.  I love that vintage high wheeler bicycle, and just colored it in with some chalks and inked the edges.  The soft green check paper is from the Halloween download, and I had just a snippet of paper leftover from a Thanksgiving project that I used to mount my rosette “wheels” on.  I added some fun gears and game spinners to the painted and distressed rosettes, then wrapped jute string around them for a fun, industrial look.   A perky little bow made with black micro gingham finished the card off nicely.  Here’s a peeky at the inside:
