Bicycle Dude Birthday Card (PP108 and MOJO254)

Hi there! Well, one kid went back to school today, 2 more to go in the next couple weeks:) Here's hoping that my stamping increases exponentially by 30% or so with the return of each boy to his classroom! LOL, hey one back today and I got two challenges covered with this card! ;) I'll post some pics of Collin tomorrow with my ColourQ post, so if you like Back To School pics, check back then! 

and I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #254, you can see I flipped the sketch.

I decided another boy's birthday card is ALWAYS in order! As my boys get older so do their friends, and I'm starting to make my cards a bit more mature in style, too. This one isn't overly "cute," and the bicycle motif would work wonderfully for any of the boys triathlon friends! :) The "Dude" stamped panel keeps it feeling enough like a "tween" card, I think. I used a variety of papers, stamps, and dies from several different brands. All in all, it didn't take too long and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Hope you like it, too! 

That's it for me today! See you tomorrow with my latest page for ColourQ! 
hugs, Noelle

supply list: stamps: Verve, TCP, Stampin' Up!; designer papers: Stampin' Up and Little Yellow Bicycle; dies: TCP and LID; burlap ribbon: The Ribbon Carousel; button: Crate Paper; clip: SU!

DUST IT OFF! That denim brad, just found it floating around in my stash. I don't have any more, but I like the way this one looks on the card! :)

Great masculine card for a dude of any age Noelle! Love the fibre trim & the postage stamp style sentiment. Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players this week. :)
