The Challenge # 30 (Take 2)

I seem to have the sort of crafting brain where if I get an idea, it won't leave me alone until I make it. This is what happened for this challenge.

I had already created a card for The Challenge but couldn't get this card design out of my head:

I won a stamp set a few weeks ago featuring this bike and could immediately picture it with the challenge colours. The stamp set is from Clearly Besotted 'Good Times'. I did decide though to use a sentiment stamp from Fiskars 'Say What?' as for some reason it seemed very French to be cycling around in-love (all I needed was an Eiffel Tower stamp in the background....). And another one layer card with no enamel dots/sequins will be feeling very unloved.....

Better go and pick up Max. He has been at a friends house around the corner all afternoon. We are having roast chicken for tea too and the washing needs to be brought in.....too many jobs, not enough hands!!!

Take care
