Card Swap

I belong to a card swap at work and this month it's Birthday cards. I was in a hurry to get them done in time, so I dug out an old favorite we made at an SU workshop a long time ago and made a bunch of them. I did make a few changes. I took off the ribbon and guess what I added? Yes. A scallop circle flower! This time though, I just used my punch instead of the Nestabilities and I put a flower and a button in the center. I changed the colors and the stamp set,too. Brent and I bike ride alot, so when SU came out with A Time for You set with this bike, I was really excited. I'm not sure if this card has a special name for the fold or not, but you just fold the front piece back in half, and add the rectangle card stock pieces on top. Here's what it looks like when you open it up:

I hope they will like it! I'll post the cards from the swap soon.
