Bicycle Race

     I am combining 3 challenges today. The first is using this sketch from Sketch N Scrap. I turned the sketch 90 degrees and moved the sentiment to the opposite side.
Card and Envelope

Card Sketch #99

     The other 2 challenges are both from Stamp TV: Mix-It-Up Monday (Let the Music Move You) and Stamp TV Kit Addicts Group (Watercolor).

     I created my own background for this card. I started by painting Color Burst with a paintbrush. I then used a burlap stencil to daub Warm Cocoa ink over the Color Burst. I colored the image with watercolor markers, die cut it, and popped it onto the card.
     My husband I recently (last October) moved into a new house. We live in a lovely community with nature trails and sidewalks. I love to ride my bike. In 1978, (I was a junior in college) Queen recorded a silly song called "Bicycle Race". It is silly, but it is the kind of song that gets stuck in your head and you can't get rid of it. Sometimes when I'm riding my bike I start singing . . .
Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like
You say black I say white
You say bark I say bite
You say shark I say hey man
Jaws was never my scene
And I don't like Star Wars
