Riding Pretty.....

Hello everyone!! I have a card to share with you for The Paper Players hosted by Nance, the theme is BICYCLE which is fabulous. I would have sadly passed on this challenge if it wasn't for the fact that just last week I received a few stamp sets I bought from Julie Koerber who is selling some of her stamps and dies. Among this bunch there was one with a bike that, even if it's not a race bike, I had to have it. Here is my card.

This sweet bicycle image is from Impression Obsession stamp set called "Riding Pretty", super cute!!
I just stamped the image onto a panel of Strathmore multi media water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink and colored the bike with SU markers, the grass and sky were sponged with Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint distress ink, the little grass patches are from Arts Impressions. 
I die cut the clouds and fussy cut the flowers and the presents, that's it!!!


Here is a picture of the inside of my card.


I apologize for the images being so dark but my camera was running out of batteries, I had to fight with it, letting it rest in between picture taking, so I was only able to take this 3, sheeesh!! 
Here is the banner that inspired my card.
Thank you for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
