I Wheelie Love You

Here's my second card for the current sketch at Seize the Sketch.  I used stamps and dies from The Cat's Pajamas to put together a simple scene.

I Wheelie Love You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from The Cat's Pajamas
The background for the scene is a piece of blue on blue striped patterned paper with a strip of gray "road" along the bottom.  The road was cut with TCP's CutUps Holiday Toppers die.  The die's meant to make a snowbank on a wintery scene, but I use it a lot to make roads.  I used the cloud die from the CutUps Talk to Me set to cut a pair of white felt clouds to fill in the top of the panel.  A yellow sun with a softly scalloped edge was tucked underneath the layered clouds. 

I matted the panel on darker blue paper, then adhered it to a light blue panel.  After adding a strip of green cardstock along the bottom beneath the road, I added the image from the Besties set on top using foam tape.  The image was stamped on a matching shape cut with a free Cutables file, then colored with Copic markers.  I stamped the "I wheelie love you" sentiment from the Wheel Love set at the bottom of the card.  I meant to add a heart between the two penguins to go with the sentiment, but I forgot to do that before I took the photo of the card!
