Look at all the potential packed into one fabulous photo!

Nance Salkeld (that's me!)
Featured Designer - Alanna 

Check out mine below:

SUPPLIES: STAMPS: Bike (TE); Flowers (Paper Sweeties); Sentiment (Jillibeans). PAPER: White cardbase (Core'dinations 110lb), Tan (Recollections). INK: Versafine black; Angel Pink & Nautical Blue (Memento); Squeezed Lemondade Distress pen (Tim Holtz); Begonia Pink Copics marker. EXTRAS: Bike die (TE); Flower die (Paper Sweeties); Brick emboss folder (Sizzix); Vine die (Die-Versions); Diagonal stripe die (Reverse Confetti).

I took a pretty literal viewpoint from the inspiration photo.  I got the partial brick effect by using a hammer on the emboss folder, lightly tapping in random spaces (or not so random), I pinpointed where I wanted some of the bricks.

Challenge Blessings!

This is very pretty, Nance! I love how you used the bicycle as your focal image (I didn't even notice the bike when I first looked at the inspiration photo lol!) The little details on this card make it really special :)
