Something Shiny- Tuesday Throwdown

Did you get one of these for Christmas? Well, I didn't but I could probably use a good bike right now for exercise. You know, all those holiday goodies we all ate? Several turns of the pedal sure wouldn't hurt, huh?

We're baccccckkkk...after a two week holiday break and Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More is furnishing the images for the DT this week at Tuesday Throwdown. I am using an image called Bicycle Built for 2. The theme this week is 'something shiny'. Makes me think UFO. :-) I added glossy accents to my bicycle for some shine and, of course, my gold brads are shiny. Get out your 'shinies' and come along  join us this week.

Recipe:
Stamps: Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More-Bicycle Built for Two
Paper: Stampin'Up! Crumb Cake and Kiwi Kiss, PTI white cs, unknown dp from LSS
Accessories: Verano tan jute, raffia, mandarin twine, glossy accents, Copics, orange button, Mark Richards gold metal brads, Spellbinders classic scallop rectangle die, EK Success double embossed edger punch, Stampin'Up! punch for sentiment (partially with top removed).

Brenda, love this card! The fun bicycle, dps and embellies make me want to jump on and take a spin to work off some of the Christmas goodies :)

I could use a shiny new bike too! This is so cute with all of these festive colors and a fun design! I love the raffia and twine accents, and those gold beads look great too! NJ!

Hmmm, I don't seem to have any UFO stamps around, but i see you have a shiny bike here! That works! My bike is in the shed, and is under quite a layer of dust and dirt. Shame on me. Need to bring it out when I get just a little bit better.

I guess every last bit of your decorations are down now, huh? I put away half, and leave stuff up a bit longer that relates to SNOWMEN: our favorite (yours and mine)!

Too many peanut clusters, eh, Benzi?? Well, you did the right thing by dragging out the ol' bicycle. (tee hee!) I hope it helps!! Your card is just adorable. :)
