Wheely Sweet ~ CMCC58, RS152, & FM196

Good morning all!  It's time for Colour Me Card Challenge 58!  This week we've got striking duo of Cherry Cobbler and Pink Pirouette.  Perfect Valentine's Day colors!
Along with our challenge colors I also used the sketch from Retro Sketches 152 and I'm also entering into the Friday Mashup 196 which used pink and red and a love theme.  

I love to browse Pinterest for inspiration and a while back I pinned this photo of a pink bike.  I knew I wanted to use the inspiration in a card someday.  For some reason I had it in my head that the bike was polka that I actually see the inpiration photo it's obviously not.  
pretty bike
Anyhow, I used my gel pen to make the dots on the bike.  I also cut out a little basket from vellum, pieced it on and added some hearts punched from the Owl Builder punch.  
I used three different stamp sets to make this card.  The little bike is from a retired set called {Moving Forward}, the sentiment is from {Cycle Celebration}, and the polka dots in the background are from {Best Day Ever} from the new Sale-a-bration.  I thought the dots matched my not-so-perfect polka dots on the bike.

As usual, make sure you check out the other designers for Colour Me this week!
