It's Sunday and time for a new Paper Players challenge. Nance is our hostess and she has a theme for us this week. We want to see bicycles "riding" across your project.
My niece is graduating from college next week. Since I needed to make her a graduation card, I thought I'd use Nance's theme and see what I could do. While it's not your typical graduation card, I rather like the way it worked out. I've combined a couple of Taylored Expressions stamp sets.
The bicycle is stamped in Memento tuxedo black and colored with Copics. After cutting it out with a Die-namics square die, the sentiment and graduation balloon were added. I stamped the balloon again on a scrap of white card stock, colored and cut it out, and popped it up over the bike with a dimensional.
The inside sentiment is a Dr. Seuss quote from The Places You'll Go stamp set:
"You have brains in your head
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself,
any direction you choose."
I know you'll enjoy the rest of the DT's cards. Check them out here:

As you read this, I'm actually in NYC for a week. On my way back to California next Friday, I'll be stopping in Colorado for the weekend so I can attend my niece's graduation ceremony.
Thanks for looking in today. Have a fun and relaxing Sunday!
