Have a Lovely Day (on Wheels) - CAS

Sometimes CAS cards can be a serious challenge - at least for me! With some friendly advice from a fellow card maker, I managed to create a CAS card with a wheels theme.
A panel of white cardstock was lightly sponged and spritzed with water to create a simple background. The bicycles were die cut from white cardstock. Four circles were stamped with the same ink as the background. The circles were punched and adhered to the back side of the wheels. The bicycles were adhered using thin foam tape. The banner was created and stamped then adhered using foam tape.

The card is being submitted to the following challenges:

1. Addicted to CAS #116

2. Crafting from the Heart #169
    (Anything Goes)

3. Happy Little Stampers July Die Challenge

Techniques: CAS, die cutting, punch cutting, sponging, stamping
Size: A2

Stamps: Altenew "Half Tone Hearts" (sentiment) & Simon Says Stamp "Lots of Dots" (for circles behind each wheel)
Ink: Distress Oxide Broken China
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White
Die: Bicycle (borrowed)
Punch: EK Tools 1" circle
Misc.: Stampin' Up! Dimensionals foam tape
