Enjoy the Ride

Hello everyone.  Welcome back for another challenge over at Crafty Gals Corner.  This week we challenge you to use scraps!  I know I have a ton of scraps and I try to use them before I cut a new sheet of paper.  With all of the scraps I have, I will never cut a new sheet!

This is Enjoy the Ride from Graciellie Design.  Both the stamp and the sentiment were printed on Cryogen White.  I colored the bike with Copics and cut it out using my Silhouette Cameo.

All of the papers used on this card are from Paper Temptress.  Such gorgeous papers!  All of these scraps except for the red came from the previous project I did using Paper Temptress papers. The Red Pepper Epic Thick Columns was in a sample pack I received while at a craft retreat over the summer.  Also, the only paper that was not a scrap was the black base made from the Epic Black Thick Columns.   That sample pack started my love of Paper Temptress papers!  So much gorgeousness in one little bag!  The gold die cut is the Antique Gold Mica/Metallic in text weight.  The smaller die was cut from the Candido Incandescent in card stock weight.  The border was punched from Opal in card stock weight.  Both Candido and Opal have a lovely golden sheen to them.  It is hard to capture it in a photo, but in real life they are amazing!  I love that you can get the paper in various weights depending on what you will use it for. The layer under the sentiment is a scrap of Grandpa's Wallpaper overlay.  It is a gold pattern printed on acetate.  So gorgeous!  I wanted the roses to have a golden sheen to them as well, so I swiped my Wink of Stella gold pen over them.  It gave them the perfect touch.

I could go on all day about the papers from Paper Temptress!  But I should give you the rest of the details about the challenge.  We have four wonderful sponsors this week!  Click the badge to head over to the shop and feast your eyes on all of the loveliness!
