The Card Concept #94

Welcome to another fun challenge at

Summer is almost here and I think this picture illustrates summer time perfectly!

I was inspired by the red bike and yellow flowers in the photo!

I made the darling little basket of flowers with a Stamps of Life stamp set called
Bicycle2stamp. Yes, I chose this stamp set for the bicycle, with all intentions of using the bicycle!
But...I kept adding flowers to the little basket and 2 things happened!
The basket was now too big for the bicycle and I loved the basket just like it was!
So I left the bike off the card!!!

Do you ever do that???
Start with a plan and end up with something totally different???
Oh well!

I hope I have inspired you to join us here at 
 Each designer chooses a style of card to create.
All of the styles are explained HERE.

Please feel free to use any of these styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles. 
My card style today would be considered 

Classy & Elegant:
Shiny finish
Sparkling embellishments
Rich color scheme
Sophisticated sentiments
Layered Testures
Awe & Impress

Lovely card with the basket of flowers!! It’s perfect without the bicycle! And, yes, I often go with a plan and it gets changed. Great card, Mackie!!

Mackie, I am so thrilled that your original plan sidetracked and turned out into this gorgeous creation! Love all of the colors, the background as well as the flowers and dimension!! Absolutely beautiful (as always) and what an inspiration to us all- hugs, sweet DT Sis!!
