Classy Cards Places You'll Go

Hello!  I'm back again today with a card inspired by the new Classy Cards 'n Such Purple Ride Challenge.  I loved the purple bicycle inspiration photo this week and once I found this stamp in my supplies this card just flew together. Don't forget to use my coupon code Jenny-10 to save 10% off your entire purchase at the Classy Cards Store.


I made the bicycle using purple paper and my Memory Box Brand New Bicycle die.  The wheels were cut with white card stock, colored with copics and paper pieced on top of the die cut.  I colored the handlebars and seat with a black copic marker.  

The rest of this card was simple.  I found purple design paper in my stash and cut a center with a Spellbinders Oval die.  I then cut a frame in white with a smaller oval.  The base is a light blue A2 card.  I wanted to use blue so the background would look like a clear sky.

I stamped my Dr. Seuss quote with Black Memento Ink and then adhered the white and purple frame on top using Joy Foam Pads for dimension.  The Poppystamps Weeping Willow Branches were glued on top and the bicycle was also adhered with Joy Foam Pads.  There's more dimension than appears in the photo.  The willow branches were cut twice.  I don't think it's visible but I actually cut a couple of long branches and glued them on the right side of the card to get long branches on that side too.

Hi Jenny! Wonderful card! The weeping willow branches remind me of vacation in South Carolina where you can find spanish moss hanging down from the canopy as you bike on the trails! I could get to day dreaming here!
