[DYSU] Challenge #39 - Swirls

It is definitely the onset of fall, because the leaves are turning and are slowly falling off the trees. When I was in my elementary school, I use to have a favorite corner in the school playground, because the wind would manage to gather up all the leaves and make them swirl into a cyclonic pattern pretty high off the ground. I was amazed and fascinated by this whole phenomenon. So til today, when I see the word Swirls I can't help but think of that memory. How is this theme going to inspire you?

This week I got to play with a fantastic silhouette image by Stitchy Bear. Silhouette have become quite popular and in, so I was delighted to do something this cute little one.

Bicycle, Bicycle...I wanna ride my Bicycle
Stamps: (Summer Fun 3) Stitchy Bear; (Flourishes - Scallops & Dots) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - White, True Black) Papertrey Ink; (Basic Card Stock - White) Recollection
Ink: (Versamark) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Embossing Powder - White) Stampendous!; (Pretty Pearls - Black) amuse; (Decorative Washi Tape Set #2 - Floral) Hambly Screen Prints

When I was cutting out this adorable image, I was thinking of the song "Bicycle" from Queen. I'm sure you have heard this classic before! The black and white of this whole card kinda just happened. Did not really plan for it...but I think it works :)

Bicycle, Bicycle...I wanna ride my Bicycle

For good measure I added a few black pearls to the center of the wheels. This is my first time putting down some washi tape, and I must say I likey a lot. Hambly Screen Prints is what i have been seeing a bunch on other people's blog, so I picked one up at my local area scrapbooking store. I think I want to go pick up the other set now too ;)

Anyways, enough chatter. Go hop along and see what the other creative girls on the DYSU blog have been up to. Play along and check back next week, because we will reveal who has joined our DYSU DT group. I am already excited to be working with these new girls!
