Addicted to CAS - Challenge #35

Happy Saturday to you all

It's time for another new challenge at Addicted to CAS and your hostess for this is the "uber" talented Sylvia of Poppy's Papercraft Patch

She has chosen your code word for this challenge and it is:

Our Sponsor for this challenge is:

The prize will be a pack of her rubber stamps called "It's all about You".

I decided to use some NBUS (Never-Before-Used Schtuff) in the form of a Joanna Sheen Motorbike Signature die.  I cut it out twice, once on silver mirri and once on black shiny cardstock.  I put these together but offset them so you can see the silver mirri at the back of the bike and also to give it some dimension.  The sentiment is computer generated (thought it gave the impression of speed???) and cut using an EK Success label punch and I've attached it to the bike with some bakers twine making it look like it's being pulled along behind (it's popped up on a couple of foam pads).  I used a Fiskars border punch on the edge of the card with a touch of red behind and three red gems.

Thanks so much for popping by - don't forget to visit the Addicted to CAS challenge blog to see what inspiration the other DT members have made for you.

Happy crafting.
