Alan's Birthday

My dear other half celebrated his Birthday yesterday,
so I'm sharing the card I made...

We love to go cycling together, and ages ago I bought some bicycle paper clips, 
with a view of using them for his card....not realising at the time that they fitted, almost perfectly,
a retired hostess set Pedal Presents.

 I recently found various ways of paper folding chevrons, so decided to use them as my 'road'.
I then had to find a way of applying the 'clip' to the stamped image.
I ended up cutting it out, and decoupaging it on top of another stamped bicycle,
so that it would fit over the top.
I also secured the bicycle clip with a new metal clip (the arrow),
from Stampin' Up!
I was determined to use a new set 'Chalk Talk' to make a greeting.
This set is fab, because there are various tags and greetings,
with matching dies to cut them out, giving a professional finish. 
I then stamped and cut out a cake to fit the basket,
which I coloured with some sparkly pens from my stash.
Almost took me as long to explain it, as it did to make it!
He did enjoy it though.

Happy Friday!
