Riding By to Say Hi!

I managed to get some more time to create this weekend and I made this card for two challenges.  One is Addicted to CAS.  It's my first time submitting a card there but I've been following for a while.  The code word is Spring.  I really love the CAS style.  I find it challenging as I always seem to want to add more.  It's all about practicing restraint and I'm sure a lot of you out there find this as hard as I do!  :-). The second is CASE Study (challenge #133).  Again this is my first time participating.  They have a muse card and you create something inspired by it.  Here's the inspiration card by Julie Ebersole.

Fabulous isn't it?  Anyway, onto my card.

Part of what I like about this card is its all about stamping.  The bike, flourishes, the flowers and hearts all stamped.  I did use some prismacolor pencils to colour in the flowers and basket on the bike though.  It seems to say to me Spring with the colours and flowers and of course the bike.  It's that time of year when people start dusting off their bicycles to enjoy the outdoors.  :-)

Well, That's all I have to share for now.  Hope you all have a fabulous day!

Supplies: bike stamp by Hero Arts, flowers and hello stamps by Imaginessense (I think), flourish by Inkadinkado, heart stamps by Verve, green ink (softly sage), purple ink (perfect plum), blue ink (ballet blue) all by Stampin' Up!, yellow ink by Studio G, pink ink by ColorBox.
