Bikes, Baskets of Flowers and Brads...

That is a crazy title you are probably thinking and what do they have in common? Well, with May just around the corner I think it's perfect for the challenges I'm participating in today. The month of May is the beginning of better weather for bike riding and beautiful flowers are "springing" up everywhere! This card I thought would work well for the Kraft Journal May Day Challenge #16 : biking and flowers the perfect combo, right? :-) (unless you have allergies - oops!!)
The brads are on the card for the Tuesday Throwdown blog challenge and this is my first time to visit and participate!

I've been itchin' to use this bicycle stamp from Unity Stamp Co. (Basketful of Wishes, Itty Bitty - Jilly Bean) and I combined it with the Taylored Expressions It's a Banner Day 1 for the sentiment and the TE Banner die and Medium Scallop Border die. LOVE this cute paper by Three Bugs in a Rug (Chloe line) and I've colored the image with my Copic Markers : E25, E31, V12, Y08, Y17, YG23. The card stock is Bazzill. I've accented the flowers with Smooch, Sassy Pink and Ranger Liquid Pearls, Buttercup and Petal Pink. Memento, Rich Cocoa was used to stamp the image and sentiment. The ribbon is by American Crafts and the BRADS are by Making Memories. Last but not least the fun Spellbinder Nestabilities are Reverse Wonky Rectangles

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you find the weather suitable for biking and smelling the spring flowers!! Have a great weekend!!

Just a reminder that Christian Paper Crafts is having their 2nd Birthday celebration starting Monday May 2 be sure and check out the Creative Blog for more info!!
