BMX Birthday card

In my family, August is a month full of birthdays.  Masculine birthday cards always are a challenge.  But because we have one male family member who is a BMX enthusiast, it was practically a no brainer what I'd choose for his card:  this fun "Big Guy's Bike" from Mo Manning's digital pencil.

As added help for inspiration, I went to this week's Mojo Monday #360 layout challenge which happened to be a tall and skinny card.
Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Mo Manning "Big Guy's Bike", Stampin' Up! "Lots of Thoughts"
Ink:  Memento Bamboo Leaves, Stampin' Up! Brocade Blue, Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink, image colored with Copic Markers
Designer Paper:  Martha Stewart "Playful Blue Paper pad"
Accessories and Embellishments:  Spellbinders Nestibilities Oval and Scalloped oval dies, Making Memories Screw Brads, Fiskars corner rounder punch, Brown dotted sheer ribbon.
Until next time,


  1. He will love this, bring a big smile, excellent coloring!
