Mimi's Bike Ride for Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - Midmonth

Happy Wednesday!

Did you get a chance yet to join in my current Crafty Wednesday challenge? If not then you still have plenty of time, and don't forget you may enter up to 3 times. This month it's all about girls and ladies. I have moved the linky tool to the end of this post, so simply scroll down to link up.

We are halfway through the month of May already and luckily I found some time to make a mid-month card for the challenge.

I used one of the stamps from Penny Black's new set "Let's Play" which is currently available HERE in my Etsy shop
I heat embossed the image using versafine onyx ink and clear embossing powder on Bristol Vellum paper and I used my Zig Clean Color Markers for coloring. Wink of Stella glitter was applied to the bow and the balloons but it's never showing up well in photos. I kept the card CAS to keep the focus on the cute image. I framed with polka dotted patterned paper from my stash.

The sentiment is from the set Sprinkles and Smiles also by Penny Black and also heat embossed. A few "candy dots" finish off this card. The card base is Neenah Linen textured 80lb card stock.

What an adorable card! Love those Mimi stamps, and you've really colored this one so beautifully with the soft pind and blue. The black/white dotted dp really sets it off. Love what you did with it. Thanks for joining in on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Best of luck.
