Fab Friday Sketch Challenge 141: En Route

Good morning!  Today I'm playing along with the Fab Friday sketch challenge showcase some of the great products in the Best Route Product Suite which is one of my favorites in the new catalog.

I used Pineapple Punch cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Gray Granite cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and Maps, Etc. Embossing Folder (I sponged lightly over the embossing to help highlight it. 

Next I added two strips of DSP from the Best Route Designer Series Paper package for the flags.  The greeting is from the En Route stamp set and I stamped in Mango Melody ink on Whisper White cardstock and then used my Big Shot and Layering Squares Framelits to cut the greeting out, as well as the scalloped square mat that was cut out of Basic Black cardstock.  Dimensionals were used to attach the greeting to the cardfront.

To finish off the card I tied a double bow out of Whisper White Baker's Twine and attached it to the bottom corner of the greeting and stamped the like bike image using Blueberry Bushell in on Pineapple Punch cardstock and then cut it out with the 3/4" Circle Punch (I did use 2 dimensionals stacked to attach the circle so it stood up over the greeting.

When I started making this card and saw the bicycle images and immediately thought of my son who took a nasty fall on his bike last week so it will be awhile before he's able to ride again and he was telling me last night one of things he misses most with having a broken wrist is not being able to ride his bike, he will be back on the roads I'm sure, not letting a little tumble get him down!!
