I'm bicycling to the PP and PPA Challenges

This is the 2nd post from me today.  I'm feeling generous.  Actually, I realized the card for the Paper Players Challenge was due very soon so here I am again.  This card is double dipping into the Paper Players and Pals Paper Arts challenges.  One is a theme challenge and one is a sketch so I was able to do so.

Here is my card for the challenges.  The photo is a bit dark but the weather is dreary and even the light box didn't make up for it.

Here are the banners from the challenges

Pals Paper Arts #PPA299

I'm a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, but I had to go rogue for some of the card's elements.  I didn't have a Stampin' Up! bicycle, but I did have a die from Memory Box that I cut out of gold paper for my card.  

The Pear Pizzazz "road" came from the Butterfly Basics stamp set.  

The sentiment is from the Project Life Remember This stamp set.  I die cut it and backed it with the Tags and Labels Framelets.

The Pink Pirouette flowers are a cut with a die from Impression Obsession.  It was a bit tedious gluing all those flowers on but I think it was worth it.  I was going for a Flower Power vibe and I like the way the flowers looked when finished.

I layered my card front on a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I then layered it on a Pink Pirouette card base.

I hope you enjoyed the extra post today!  Check back tomorrow to see the next new post!

Happy stampin'!
