I Wheelie Miss You!

Here's a card I shared at our party and just realized I hadn't blogged it yet! This uses three sets: "Inspiration Mosaic", Rupa's scooter form "Are We There Yet?"(painted pink here for your best girlfriend!) aaaand, my little frog from "Hip Hop Accessories"! Who knew how well this frog would fit? (or that they could ride scooters??) Can I just say how much I love him waving and posing here??? I didn't use a stamp positioner, just stamped the scooter first and then eyeballed it. His little webby hand will just be resting on the handle and his tippy toe on the frame. :)



I chose a piece of striped paper (DCWV Spring Stack) with the lines going horizontally to suggest the forward movement of the scooter, then used circles of Black Onyx to frame up him and my embellishments (some buttons from Basic Grey Cupcake pack) that were a nice match for the pastels in my DP. I place the buttons at intersections of the grid and placed my focal point on the opposite side, see how you eye follows the piece back and forth down the card? Finally I added the circles trim stamp from "Inspiration Mosaic" above and below Rupa's greeting, (there I go again with the circles!) to "wheelie" tie this theme all together. ;)



Are you ready for the "Inspiration Mosaic" Blog Hop tomorrow? Feel free to add this banner to your blog to let people knowabout the hop and the candy! Thank you!
