Friendship Card ~ Stars and Stripes Bike

When I was looking for a bike cut to make this card I knew this one was just right.
It reminds me of the bike I learned how to ride on.
We would ride around and around in our yard for hours.
Every summer we used to decorate our bikes and ride them in our little town parade.
That is why I picked this sentiment because these memories are priceless.

*Cards base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front cut at 5.25 x 4 in. from the Bo Bunny 6x6 Anthem Collection pad.
*Card front frame cut just a little bit larger than the card front.
*Sentiment frame from the Verve Stamps Mini Bookplate die set.
*Sentiment using a Stampin Up stamp.
*Bike cut at 3 in. from the Cricut Independence Day cartridge.
*Stars cut from an EK Success punch.
*Red, white and blue ribbon braded with ribbon from my stash.

May your day always be filled wtih love.
