Happy Birthday Janelle!

Paper Players Color Challenge 325 and Match the Sketch 154 are the two challenges that inspired this card. Our friend and her husband like to bike and it's her birthday in a few days. I used stamps from Sheltering Tree, Paper Pumpkin and Flourishing Phrases. I embossed the bicycle in gold and silver and sponged the edge with silver. The sentiment was embossed in silver and the edge sponged in gold. The star embellishments are from the Metallic Enamel Shapes. The background is from the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate sheets. I cut out the circles with the Stitched Shape dies and used a gold metallic foil doily behind the bike. The baker's twine is retired. All products are SU with the exception of the gold heart border at the inside bottom. Part of the inside sentiment is embossed and the rest is just stamped in silver. 

Thank you for looking!
