Joy Ride - Joys Of The Seasons New Release Blog Hop

Hello High Hopes fans and welcome to the Joys of the Seasons blog hop. I hope you are enjoying all of the design team posts - so much fun! You should have arrived here from Carolina's blog. 

My card features "Joy Ride". Super cool Bob and his wife - congratulations on your wedding Bob! - are participating in their home town Christmas parade. We find them cruising down the main street under a colourful garland street decoration and waving to their adoring fans on his super cool motorcycle. 

I coloured my stamp with Spectrum Noir Markers (list below) and fussy cut it. My background sky was created by pouncing some blue ink, cutting a strip of grey cardstock (pounced with grey ink to make it look like cement) for the road and adding just a tiny bit of snow. I don't think Bob would have his motorcycle out if there was a ton of snow do you? 
The "garland" is cut with my Cricut, I added my sentiment and a few snowflakes I cut with a Marvy snowflake punch. 
Glitter was added to Bob's wife's earrings and necklace (hard to see) and Wink of Stella was added to Bob's glasses (hard to see). I am addicted to YNS gumdrops so I had to add a few to the corners and drew on my stitch lines with a black marker.
