I have got the biggest collection of chipboard in the world

I admit to owning a lot of chipboard pieces but most of the time they are put to good use and all my chipboard pieces will be used one day, I keep telling myself that anyway to justify my collection. I made this card using one of my favourite pieces as the main focus, I just love this chipboard bicycle, I stamped the bike several different colours before deciding on the light blue.

With the help of my husband I created the background (grass, sun and sentiment) on photoshop and printed it onto textured white cardstock. I have saved the background so that I can use it again if need be, the background design can be altered very easily. The flowers have been punched out and stuck to the card with dimensional tape dots to make them stand out, I of course had to add some bling to the center of the flowers.

I had an awesome day today, ended up working in the morning and for the rest of the day hung out with my pop up friends although I  was meant to go for the start of the Sydney city festival in the city. We had a working bee at the shop, I really didn't do too much except stand around and talk which was lots of fun, I did do some sweeping but that was hardly contributing to the overall collective effort, I will make up for it another time.We ended the evening by having a delicious meal at one of my favourite Malaysian restaurants, we all ate way too much. Today was one of those days that made me appreciate the value of friendship, I am truly blessed to have the friends I have.
