A fun guy card

This card started as a sample for this class but when I failed to cut the decorative paper accurately I was forced to abandon it and start over.  It has been sitting on my desk and I decided that I would reinvent a sketch for it.  So I added a ribbon across the front of the layered decorative paper and then created a large focal element that features an old time bicycle along with a fun greeting!!  I watercoloured a bit of a shadow for the bicycle then I layered it onto brown.  Next, I cut a blue rectangle that would accommodate both the image and the greeting (Desert Diva) which I colour washed a bit to coordinate with the image.  I added a short piece of a die cut zigzag border in between which I found on my desk.  I used 3D foam tape to adhere this large element to my card front.
