Die-Versions "Spring Bike"

Today, my handsome man and I are celebrating our 42nd Anniversary!
I'm not sure how or why he's put up with me this long, but I'm happy that he has.

Last fall, we bought a couple of bikes for a fun activity to do together.
When Die-Versions came out with this sweet "Spring Bike", I knew I had to make
a card with it today.

This photo gives you a close-up of the glossy parts!

I die cut it from white cardstock, and used Copics and Glossy Accents to
color in the parts.  This is too cute!  I'm hoping that they will create
some small 'basket fillers' for the different seasons.

The sentiment comes from a great stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs (Item #E358), called Bicycle.

Be sure to check out the Die-Versions blog each day for inspiration,
and check out the Die-Versions store for new products, sales, and lots of

Thanks for stopping by!
