I'm playing along with three challenges for this card. I started by using the sketch from The Paper Players. I flipped it 180 degrees and simplified it a bit - no element across the top of mine (so it might be out of the running but so be it). I stamped and paper pieced the scooter instead of colouring it (because I prefer paper piecing) and so this is eligible for Young Crafters Unite's challenge - No Colouring Allowed.. How perfect for me! And finally, of course, this is going in for the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.
That scooter reminds me of my first bike. Here in Bermuda you can get a bike license when you turn 16 (no car license until you're 18). You can also only have one car per household so most families have a car and a few bikes on hand. I made a Father's Day card because more often than not the moms around here commandeer the cars so dads go off to work on their scooters in their Bermuda shorts with their ties flapping in the wind. :)
