The View is Better from the Top!! Fabulous Friday

A Fabulous Friday Morning to you all!! Yep, today is another fab friday and we are all sharing easel cards today! Since I had never made one of the easel's before I was a teensie bit concerned about how difficult it might be. NO worries, SCS has an awesome tutorial and a video for those of us who like to see more detail. As it turned out these cards are super fun to make and not hard at all!!

I chose one of the Alphabet Flash Cards ( there are 4 cards in the set for $5.00) from SCH for my card this week! These images are such fun to play with, here is the card I want to share with you:
Now for the Easel effect:
I was pretty happy with the way this turned out considering it was my first try! I decided at the last minute to use craft wire to add spokes to the popped up bike, here is a close up of the spokes.
Sorry the picture is just not that great but IRL it looks pretty cool!

Don't forget that today is Freebie Friday, go here, get your image and hang out, look around at the brand new site and do some shopping!! So glad you came by, please be sure to visit my teammates and see their beautiful cards!!

I saw this last weekend while we were away, but didn't get by to comment. It is so totally wonderful! I think it is one of the finest vintage cards I have ever seen. I LOVE the hand signals cards and the way you took the bicycle image and used it again as part of the paper design. And the wire spokes for the wheel? Holy smokes, what can I say? That is totally, positively ingenious! This card so ROCKED last week's challenge!
