Halloween Ride

I just love these motorcycle stamps by Bombshell Stamps.   I decided to challenge myself to make a Halloween card and this is what I came up with.  The motorcycle stamp from Bombshesll Stamp's set called Custom Choppers is just such a fun image to use.  It just wants to roll right off of the page/card.


I stamped the image on some speckled cardstock from Stampin' Up.   I then cut it down to size and used a ruler with an Exacto knife and freestyle trimming with an Exacto knife to make the image of the bike just roll off of the white base. 


Both the front and the back of the bike are slightly off of the white stamped layer. 


And here's the inside of the card.   The Happy Halloween banner on the front of the card ended up getting covered up, so I added another strip on the inside of the card. 



ETA: and it just so happens that this card is perfect for this week's Dynamic Duos challenge. I had to add it to the dynamic duos challenge blog.   Love the ladies there and it's one of my favorite challenge blogs.
