"I used to think that anyone doing anything weird was weird. I suddenly realized that anyone doing anything weird wasn't weird at all and it was the people saying they were weird that were weird." -- Paul McCartney

We were challenged to use the negative of a diecut on one of the (closed) groups that I am on, and this is what I created:

I used the negative of a diecut i made from blck CS as the frame of my card, and the positive, a bicycle inside the frame, as a silhouette.
A handcut piece of the black CS is the 'hill'.
Blue DP was placed behind the sihlhouette.
To add a sentiment, I printed it onto the same DP, distressed it  little, and added it directly on the background DP.
Another strip of the DP was swallowtail cut and  pasted onto the black frame, and black gems used as embellishments.

To complete the card I used a blue CS mat and a white CS card base.

This was a quick and fun masculine card to do ... hope you like it too.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges:

123 GET SCRAPPY, #2, TIC TAC TOE (circles – bicycle wheels/rhinestones/die cut)
