I made this card to honor this week's queen Judy aka StampingQueenJAR. Her gallery is awesome with lots to choose from! I noticed: lots of square cards, stitching and distressing, layers and vintage elements. I cased this card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...mp;ppuser=8519. Instead of using dp strips, I used a piece of dp that looked like stitched strips (cheating I know). I stuck with a bike image, but went with a little more of a vintage look. I used vanilla cs for my embossed circle and made a dyed, layered paper flower with a button and burlap string accent. My tag has some distressed seam binding. I also added a dp strip on the inside of the card as I noticed in many of Judy's cards.
***Congrats again to Queen Judy....hope you enjoy your reign.
