Year of Thinking of You - probably April

I say probably April cos I'm not sure if that's the month she'll use it. It seems like it might be better suited to May or June. Regardless, I made two cards: one with a red bike and one with a pink bike. The red one is going to my s-i-l and the pink one is going to a friend.
I used two stamp sets from Papertrey Ink: the bike image and sentiment come from Pedal Pusher. The flowers come from Just Smile. For both cards I drew my own banner, cut it out, then stamped on the sentiment. For the pink card, I drew in lines tying the banner to the bike. On the red card, I used some bakers twine to tie on the banner to the red die cut bike.

You can probably see that on both cards I used some foam tape to pop up those banners a little.
I added some brads to the red bike's wheels.

Oh and did you notice the envelopes underneath the bikes?  I found some old Making Memories long (business sized) envelopes in my stash. I had some cute washi tape my sister had sent me a while ago that had a very similar color scheme to those flowers on the cards - so I added some washi to the envelopes. I should've taken photos of those envelopes too - but suffice it to say it looks cute.
okay that's it for today. thanks for stopping by.
