On a Bicycle Built for Two

Morning, y'all!  How are you on this fine St. Patrick's Day morning?  Got your green on?  I do.  I even picked out a green tank top to wear to the gym for my kickboxing class :D

Today's card is wearing green too.

All stamps except the red hearts on the bottom are from the Sale-a-Bration latecomer addition Pedal Pusher.  I think the images are cute (the bike, birds, basket, and hearts in the basket are all separate stamps) but I don't think my card is really selling it.  Well, not every card can be your favorite, right?

I started out with the color challenge from The Color Throwdown which I just love and adore:

I used Wisteria Wonder, Real Red, and Cucumber Crush.  I wish the Wisteria Wonder wasn't so gray though, I miss our old purples still and I'm hoping to get one in the next batch of In Colors.

I also used the interesting sketch this week from Freshly Made Sketches:

I was tempted to do a bouquet of flowers for the circular element, but I was inspired by the CTD challenge graphic to get out the bike design.  Hubs and I rode a bicycle built for two when we were in China, but my seat was way too far down so I looked pretty goofy in the pictures.  But still a fun memory!

See you back here tomorrow for the Friday Flashback.  Cheers, peeps!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Pedal Pusher, Lovely Amazing You
Ink:  Basic Black, Wisteria Wonder, Real Red, Cucumber Crush, Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake
Paper:  Cucumber Crush, Thick Whisper White
Accessories:  Circles Framelits (to make a mask)
