Inspired By #10 Feeling Lucky

Hi everyone!  It's time for another Inspired By challenge, and I chose to do an eclectic collage-style card, something I haven't done for a while!  It's almost one layer...the little tag and row of hearts are the only add-ons!  Here we go:

Almost all the images I used here are from an Artistic Outpost set called A Lovely Day; I just love their vintage style!  I stamped everything in Emerald Envy, stamping off the lighter images and using my Misti to get a good, clean, dark image for the bicycle and the sentiment:

I also used some Emerald Envy cardstock to diecut a row of hearts, and added a few more floating out of the bicycle basket!  I cut out a little tag and adhered the cut-out letters of "a lovely day" and added a brad and a wee piece of Emerald Envy ribbon:

 And here's the photo that Laurel provided for us as a prompt:

Isn't that a happy little scene?!  I'm also entering this in the Cards in Envy Green Things challenge, too!  And truth be told, below is the first card I made for the challenge, but changed my mind after it was done:

I used the jar and sentiment from Jar of Love and the shamrock from Itty Bitties, embossing them in white, and then added florals from Bouquet Bunch.  A little doily is behind the jar, although it's hard to see, and it's all on top of a note card.  It's still cute and I am sure I'll find someone to whom I can send it!  Thanks for popping in today!  I hope you'll play with our pretty green challenge and share your creation with us at Inspired By!  Stay warm and safe today!

A little horsin' around; good thing Wayne is a good sport!:
