Crafty Ribbons Bicycle Challenge

I found a new challenge recently and knew I had the perfect stamp
to enter the Bicycle with Ribbon Challenge at Crafty Ribbons
You don't often associate a bicycle with ribbon but I am really
happy how my card turned out.
I love playing around with backgrounds and getting my fingers
all inky especially when you get a great result.
I love the bright colours I used and it made the
embossed stamp really stand out.
Used several colours of card stock to match
I embossed my Stampin' Up Postage Due stamp with
black embossing powder then got inky with
Tim Holts Peacock Feathers/Bundled Sage and
Seedless Preserves
The small floral image next to my ribbon is also from
Stampin' Up - Fresh Vintage cut with
Spellbinders Square Die
Sentiment is from Cas-ual Fridays Stamps
Added  a crinkled piece of ribbon - love the look
Distressed the edges of my main image and background paper
and finished with a black pearl.
That's it for me for now so till next time

PS - I'd love to read your comments.

The ribbon looks amazing like that. I love that you cut points in it and it reminds me of the gigantic flag my mom used to make me attach to my bike when I was riding mine; except mine was obnoxious neon orange and not nearly as gorgeous as this. The mixed media background is beautiful too Ina. Nicely done!!!
Big hugs,
