Time to Play with some Die Cuts and just for fun!!!

I had some time this week to play and found myself creating this card with some die cuts I made and bought.  I had been wanting to create a card using a bicycle die cut, but hadn't been able to find one exactly to fit what I wanted until I was looking on Pinterest the other night, imagine that LOL.  Here is what I created with the bicycle as my starting image:

Everything on the card was created with Die Cuts.  A scalloped circle from a newly purchased Sizzix die I found on sale at Michael's this week and a lace doile.  I mounted 3 strips of Tim Holtz tape to make a fun background for my bicycle.  The rolled flowers are a SVG file I have had in my Cricut files for awhile that I have saved and cut out and roll when I am watching TV :)   I purchased the Gothic Window SVG file and a couple of other files online and the Memories  was cut from a Cricut cartridge called Phrases.

Hind sight I would have looked harder for a different fence that was larger, but I used a MS punch.  But I still like the way the whole card turned out, and the most important thing was that I had fun creating it !!!.

I hope that you do what I did and take some time to just have fun with your crafts and love the finished project. This is going to go in my craft room if I ever get my curtains and pillows made, but that is another story and post.

I hope you have enjoyed my project and take some time to do something fun yourself.
