Birthday greetings for the biker

Happy Saturday everyone!
As a brief update to the Waldo Canyon Fire, we have it 30% contained (WOOHOO!).  Unfortunately, we now have found 2 people dead.  Today should be hot, dry and winds blowing from several directions--the forecasters are worried what that will mean to this fire.  About half of the neighborhoods have opened back up though, allowing people to return to their homes.  I cannot imagine being displaced like that with not even knowing whether your home is standing.

Today, I am posting a card for a young lady I know who is a competing bicyclist.  While the card hardly depicts a racing bike (more like a bike I'd ride -- LOL), nevertheless it is a bike!  She will be turning 29 tomorrow---but you couldn't even tell because her maturity would make you think she is far wiser than her young 29 years!  Anyway, here's to her.  Thanks for stopping by today! Margaret

This card will be entered into the following challenges:  

Stamp: Printworks, Sentiment: Michaels Clear Dollar Bin Stamps 
Paper: Jillibean soup
Edge punch: Martha Stewart
Embellishments: Glossy accent on bike; pearls (Memory Box), FlowerSoft (coming from basket)
