Banner ~ Bike ~ Birthday! {H2H challenge}

The challenge this week on the Heart 2 Heart Blog is to create a project for a child's Birthday. I created my card today with one of my own favorite Birthday gifts I received as a child. A bicycle!

There is such a thrill in receiving your first bike. Overcoming your fears learning to ride it, then getting the freedom to take off through the neighborhood to visit a friend. It's your first taste of freedom, before turning 16 and getting to drive a car!

I went with a girl theme, because I don't think a little boy would ride a bicycle with flowers in the basket! {Ha Ha} I stamped some stripes creating my own background card base, added some fun banner pieces with pearls and finally a simple sentiment.





Be sure to check out the other artwork on H2H and come back tomorrow as I will show you more artwork from this special stamp set.
