Take off for good times

I'm getting ready to put my house up for sale and so I've packed away a lot of my craft supplies. I've tried to just keep out the basics along with a minimum of patterned paper and embellishments. As a result I'm trying to use what I have still unpacked in more creative ways.

This boy's birthday card is completely without stamps (the good times sun is a rub-on) and as all my crafty friends now, I love my stamps, but they were one of the first items I packed away (except for some favorites, of course). I added brads in an unusual way (for me) by putting them onto the tree. And finally, I created the bike ramp by using strips of scrap paper. The design of the card is out of a magazine but unfortunately I can't share which one because all my magazines are packed now and I forgot to write the magazine name down when I made note of the sketch. The papers are all Abby Road.
