DDD: Hit the open road!

Hello friends!

In just a few more weeks, summer will be upon us.
School is almost out here and I'm counting. down. the. days!
For many, summer means a time for traveling and hitting the open road, 
enjoying the warm and wonderful weather.
While we are fortunate here in South Florida to have nice weather almost always,
 I imagine for those of you up north or abroad, summer means being outdoors!
It's the 15th of the month ~
and that means it's time for the DDD card group to share our cards
that we've made with the kits from two hostesses:  Carol and Shelly!
The DDD = Dueling Darlings Divas -vs- Dazzlers,
a friendly duel between friends with a themed card kit
They had a fun theme for us this month:  Motorcycle Masculine cards :)
I received a card kit from Carol ~ all I did was add cardstock and glue
and designed this card :)
Motorcycles, says Carol, makes her think of leather, 
road trips and freedom riders!
I love that!

My card is rather plain and I tried to use at least one of each thing in the kit ~
 the paper, image, sentiment, ribbon + the cool brads that look like spikes!
 I purposely left the image uncolored
to give it a nice balance against the busy road map designer paper.
I added the sentiment and die cut that with a banner die, and it reads:
"Four wheels can move your body,
but two wheels can move your soul."

How about you, my friends?
Do you have any summer plans?
Where is the open road taking you?!

 Thank you, Carol and Shelly, for your theme for this month's duel theme ♥

Thanks for your visit today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
