NBUS Challenge & SSS Work It Wednesday

Hi there...

Once again the lovely Darnell is hosting her ever popular NBUS challenge! 



You must hop on over to her Blog to check out all the details as there are various optional elements but the theme is always the same ...
Use something that you haven't used before, be it a new item or something that has been stashed away just waiting for this moment! 
There is a whole array of amazing prizes to be won... That lady just blows me away... I was lucky enough to meet her last year and trust me, she really is as lovely, generous and witty as you think!

So here's my entry


My NBUS items are the stencil I used for my BG which was a gift from my friend Stella and to my shame I had never used, and also the bicycle die which I bought on Amazon and it arrived on Monday... 


I cut the bicycle in silver glitter card and in white so I could pieced the flowers/stars and mud guards, then used Copics to colour the balloons etc and glossed them with Mod Podge dimensional magic

One of the optional elements is to use the camouflaged word technique and that's what I did here with a PTI birthday die.

I'm also entering this as Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday



Ok... My friend Pat will be arriving in a few hours and I know she will want to CASe this so I'd better get organised...


Have a great day 

~ Ros ~

I just want to be on that gorgeous bike and peddling away with those balloons floating behind me!! Another beautiful card Ros!! You certainly 'nailed' the technique too!!

Stella said...

Don't be ashamed; now you used it. And it looks fabulous. I love that bicycle die too. Great idea to add glittered details! Have fun with Pat (wish I was there to join you...)

Love the background and your pretty colours. 'Recognize' the die and clever how you've used it with hi-lighting the mudguards, saddle etc. Fun idea to camouflage the die sentiment. Perfect card for the NBUS challenge and the optional element. Thanks for sharing this beauty and thank you for stopping by my blog x

Marina said...

That camouflaged sentiment is so clever - I love the stripes on this happy card.

Greta said...

Oh my goodness--this is absolutely wonderful, Ros! I love how you used the stencil & it worked perfectly for that neat version of camouflage where it's plain at one end! You can enter this at SSS Wednesday, too. Have fun with Pat!

Leslie Miller said...

Ack! So cute and fun! The bold birthday word is perfect for the camouglaged word technique. Super cute bicycle die. Love the fade out sponging of the stencil. Enjoy your day with Pat!

Davi said...

OH my gosh Ros this is the CUSTEST!! Love the diagonal strips and the bicycle is the most fun! The basket and balloons are too cute! This is just one happy card makes me smile :)

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

That's a sweet and fun one Ros!

Maria said...

Oh, such a pretty card using the stencils in soft colors, Ros! And, the bicycle die is so fun with the basket of flowers and balloons! Hope you have great fun crafting with Pat!

Your stenciled background is fabulous. I love that bike with the balloons and
and fireworks. So perfect for any celebration. I have a bike die that I have never used and a niece who is having a birthday first part of February. you have reminded me to pull it out and use it for her card. got a special 70% off on it before Christmas put it away and had forgotten about it. As always a wonderful design.

Gorgeous card! I really love your ombre stripes and use of the hidden word technique. The white bicycle is perfect, too.

Tracy said...

Don't know why but this bicycle makes me think of Mary Poppins flying through the air with her umbrella. LOL It's whimsical and fun and the way you did the birthday die cut as part of the background looks fabulous. Hugs!

Beautiful card Ros. Love the fading diagonal stripes, what a wonderful way to do a background! The glittery bits on the bike are lovely and your layered sentiment blending in with the background is just amazing! So lovely!

Barbara said...

What a happy card - perfect for a birthday, especially a bike-lover's! Mental note for October...

Darnell said...

That's a really fun bicycle die with the balloons like that! But it's the stripes that really blew me away with this design, Ros! What a fantastic idea to let them drift off the one side like that! And it made for a stunning hidden word effect!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #9 and joining in the optional theme! And thank you, my friend, for your kind words here and in your get well messages! Love and hugs, Darnell
