Sweet Ride! Moxie Fab 'Iwant To Ride My Bicycle' Challenge

Sweet Ride!
Digi Supplies:
Patterned Papers: Jesse Edwards Citrus

Vintage Bike ClipArt: Found at Graphics Fairy
Sentiment: Created in MS Word: Berlin Sans Font
Traditional Supplies:
CS: Archivers
Little Clips: Stampin' Up
Yellow Twine: My Personal Stash

The current 'I Want to Ride My Bicycle' challenge over at the Moxie Fab World is to 'Create a project (card, gift bag, tag, layout, home decor item, mini-book cover, etc.) that incorporates a bicycle in an innovative way.' The Challenge ends June 28th -so lots of time to still play!

BTW: There were NO Bicycle stamps at Michael's when I was in the big city this last Thursday. But somehow, I came home with a ton of stuff I wasn't looking for! Oy... I know if I went to Archiver's I could have scored on the super cute one by Hero Arts! CURSES for not driving an additional 30 minutes in nasty construction traffic with my husband's truck! (long story... I have truck and trailer issues - ranch business).

So, my 'innovative way' is the citrus wheels. I gave this one some thought. Kinda lame, I know but there I was, thinkin' of summer... and summer sweetness, which lead to a sweet ride. And gosh, summer colors and tasty things! So... there you have it. Citrus goodies. I added a few spokes with a black sharpie.

And, yes this is a hybrid card. I'm dipping my toe into digital stuff, and trying to make things without getting frustrated!

Thanks for looking!
