Inspired By All The Little Things #79

Hello friends.  I'm playing along with the Inspired By All The Little Things challenge today.  They always have the most wonderful inspiration photos and this one's no exception!!

I was inspired by the brick wall, the bicycle, and the hearts.  I kept my card kind of simple so I could use it for a masculine card if I needed to, and although the photo suggests Valentine's Day, I wanted to use my card for a birthday card.  Here's what I came up with:


I used a Paper Studio embossing folder for my brick background and sponged it with TH Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a little bit of PTI's Americana ink.  I attached the brick layer to a piece of Americana cs and also cut out the heart from PTI's Primitive Hearts Dies with Americana cs.  My bicycle die cut is from an MFT die and I added a couple white brads to the centers of the wheels.  The sentiment is from an older SU! set called Wonderful Words.


This was a FUN challenge and there's still a couple more days to play along (closes this Friday the 16th), so check out all the wonderful inspiration from the DT and in the gallery and play along.  You can find all the info right HERE to play along.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
