Old As A Penny-Farthing



Therese Calvird has given us a super fun card to be inspired by over at the Muse challenge. How cute is that bike colored onto the Sticky Barc? It inspired me to pull out some birch wood veneer paper I got from Simon Says and haven't used yet. I thought the cheeky sentiment went perfectly with the old penny-farthing cycle and so am going to play along at the Naughty or Nice birthday challenge.  And because the cycle is a from a Hero Arts set I'm going to enter this in the Hero Arts Birthday Challenge in the Anything Goes category!  Whoop whoop for the triple threat card!  :)



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Real Red, Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Specialty Paper:  (Birch Wood Veneer Paper) Simon Says Stamp
Stamps:  (Penny-farting from Joy Ride) Hero Arts, (Happy birthday from Birthday Bash Sentiments) Papertrey Ink, (You Are Old from Feb '12 KOM - Lucky To Have You) Unity Stamp Company
