Riding Bike Card

Hi all,

I needed to make a card for my boyfriend's mother for her birthday. She started bike riding every day not too long ago and seems to really enjoy it, so I decided to make her a biking card.

I made the bike frame by drawing lines and using an exacto knife to cut the pieces out. I used circle punches and a circle cutter for the wheels, handle bars, and circles at the pedal. The wheels are put together using brads because I wanted them to spin.

I used white paint and a sponge to make the clouds.

Here it is:

 The bike moves up the hill and the wheels spin.

 I made the bike rather large so I needed a large card back. I used a full 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of card stock of the back. I needed to think of something to put on the inside.

 I used a candle stamp that I have and made a border on white card stock then colored the candles with colored pencils.Then a simple happy birthday stamp and a birthday hat were placed in the center of the card.

I am entering the following challenges with this card:
