Pierre and Ernest take a Ride.

Pierre and Ernest

Meet Pierre and Ernest, they are not going to let life just go by they are going to enjoy life so they decided to go for a bike ride and do they look like they are having fun? It is time again for Cards for Men Challenge.

Start Date:  28th March
End Date:  11th April
Theme:  Embossing:  I do want to point this out my card is embossed but you can not see it. I embossed the grass area with a Quic Kutz folder called “Plants” and you can not see the embossed area. I think it works best if you emboss something that has no design on the paper.

The image that I used is called “Pierre and Ernest” and I do have the link above to Paper Pretties if you would like to check out the images they have. The sentiment I used is a Stamp from The Angel Company. The Paper Shapers Punch is what I punch it out with it is the Scalloped Square. The Butterfly is Martha Steward Punch called Monarch. I punched it out twice, I did use sparkle white and yellow paper but it is hard to see and added some yellow rime stones.

PE butterflyOn the handle bars of the bike, I used yard to make the tassels for the handles.Of course their has PE tossels on biketo be some flowers in the grass, so I added just a few.

Pierre and Ernest close up I do think they look like they are having fun. This is the close up of my images. I added some wiggly eyes two both Pierre and Ernest. I added Diamond Glaze from Jude Kinz. I’m sure you can tell I cut the image out, I’m sure you are thinking I can’t believe she even said that. I was trying to think of a background for the image and I thought this would work perfect.

So I hope you had a wonderful week end. I want to thank you for stopping. I do hope you enjoyed my card.
