Summer Anything Goes Challenge Are the Sprinkles of Life

Cycle, Celebration, Sprinkles of Life, Summer, Bicycle, Stampin Up

Hello, my Stampin’ friends! It’s time for the next challenge and everyone needs to jump into this one! It’s an Anything Goes with a summer theme! Since we are smack dab in the middle of summer right now, you should find this one incredibly fast and easy. My card was inspired by the theme photo. I used Cycle Celebration from the 2013 Annual Catalog. I had used a couple of the other stamps in the set but had never inked up the bike. I also wanted to use Sprinkles of Life, which was the Ronald McDonald stamp set in the 2015 Annual Catalog. It is still available in the current catalog. I love that it coordinated with the Tree Builder Punch, which I fell in love with at first sight but haven’t used nearly enough.
