Usually I need a lot of time for choosing papers, die cuts and embellishments ... Often, when I start a card with some "great" idea, it ends up quite differently !
I made this card for our Neighbor who loves bicycling.
The PP that I used for the base layer is from ScrapBerry's: "Auto Vintage".
I also used a piece of it for my hidden tag.
I stamped the sentiment and cut it into 3 parts.
On the front you see :"Take Time To Enjoy" matching the BoBunny clock design and the image of an old bicycle, which is a vintage image from Gerda's Hobbyshop. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=205884
On the inside you can read the last part of the sentiment:"the little things in life".
A tag with a more modern bicycle is hidden under the image.
For further embellishments I used 2 silver brads for the tires and some gear die cuts from Joy crafts.

Monique, I envy the thought, care, and artistry that you put into your cards...it is obvious that you are a tortoise! : ) Nothing is extraneous, yet there is a myriad of beautiful details....all relating to your theme. Certainly your neighbor treasures and keeps your creations.
