Brand New Shinny Bike

Any boy would love to get one of these for his birthday!  I created this card following a sketch at Stamp TV weekly sketch challenge STVSKSP12.
The bike was stamped using Gina K Designs Enjoy the Sunshine  set.  I love this set as it is very versatile for different occasions.
The background holey strip is what is left after sequins are punched out.   One of the hardest parts was to cut out the two corner stripped pieces, the strips on the age were going up & down not cross ways so I had to angle it to get the correct angle on the strips.  The two oval pieces were cut with the Cricut then I distressed the edges.
The bike I stamped twice and colored with my MS markers.  One was stamped directly on the ivory oval, the other on another piece of paper, then I very carefully cut it out.  After it was cut out I put Glossy Accents on all the bike parts to make them stand out.  Then cutting very tiny pieces of foam tape I pop dotted the bike.    The sentiment I stamped and then cut out using one of my Nesties.
Hope you enjoy my bike card and thanks for stopping by.
