Brand New Bicycle

A warm hello to everyone. Today I am sharing with you a easel card I made for the Cheery Lynn "Celebrate" Challenge.  Remembering as a child when you would get a brand new bicycle for your birthday I thought a childs birthday card with a brand new bicycle on it would be a nice choice. I started with some cute cupcake paper  and chose the colors green and blue to match up with that paper making it bright and cheery. I used the  French Flair Scalloped and French Flair Classic to make the kool shape for the card base as well as a background shape for the popped up cupcake and the Little Pink Bicycle. I cut the bicycle in three different colors and then used parts of each color to assemble a bicycle that any child would love to have. I then added some glossy accents to the handlebars. seat and tires. I fussy cut some strawberries from the paper and put them into the basket of the bicycle. I made a daisy  from the Daisy Strip and added some leaves from the Flourish Leaf Strip. I added one of the hearts from the Two of Hearts set and added an embossed verse on top.  I threaded some ribbon through  the Ribbon Eyelet Border and attached it to the base along with the Happy Birthday greeting.
