Inky Impressions New Releases - Work Hard, Play Harder!

I've been so busy this week that it was lucky that I could make one card fit two commitments!
This card fits both my last Guest Designer spot at Cheery Lynn Designs and it features one of the New Releases from Inky Impressions!
There are two new rubber stamps, Nickie in The Rain and Christopher Riding Bike, and we have Golfer Boy as a brand new digital image!
I find that I don't use many of the fancy die cuts on boy cards so it was nice to challenge myself and I really like the finished result.

Challenges:
Copic Markers Europe - Only Boys Aloud
Whimsy Inspires - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
My Hearts Pieces - Be Sentimental (3 entries only)
Basic Grey - Inspired by a Song (Bicycle by Queen)
Crafty Sentiments - Buttons (1 entry only)
Cuttin and Stampin - Use a Bicycle
Die Cuttin Divas - Use a Bicycle
LEJ Designs - Punches/Dies
Oldie But a Goodie - Inspired by a Song (Bicycle by Queen)(paper is the old item)
Artistic Impressions - Cards for Men
Card Mania - Spots and/or Stripes



Card Recipe:
Image - Christopher Riding Bike
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Oliver by Basic Grey
Brads - Basic Grey
Sentiment - The Paper Studio
Heart Buttons - Dress It Up
Arrow - Colorbok
Ribbon - Michaels
Cheery Lynn Dies - Card Maker Scalloped Rectangles (3 sizes), Grass Border and Cuties 2 (used as a border)







This border is actually meant to be rolled to make a flower but I think it coordinates well with the scalloped edge on the rectangles
I hope you liked this little guy as much as I do.
