You make every day special

Welcome to my Friday post, where I share a project that I've designed 

Today's card was made with three stamp sets: 
the little bicycle from Breath of Fresh Flair
the skyline from  On Trend 2013 
and a sentiment from Everyday Expressions.


I started by stamping the skyline in Versamark and heat embossing it with black embossing powder. 
Then I diecut some clouds from some post-it notes to make masks 
for when I added some blue ink to my card using my blending tool. 
I added some strips of patterned paper and stamped my bicycle. 
Then I cut a banner from my mat, stamped my sentiment and adhered it to my card, 
after wrapping it with twine. 
Some stitching finishes it off.


I'm also linking this up to this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge: to use a product from their store.
They sell Fresh Squeezed Stamps stamps. :)


Thanks for looking!
