Happy Saturday! I started working on this card yesterday afternoon and kept getting distracted, man do I have spring fever in the worst way, I have the attention span of a gnat right now. I have been taking my new puppy for lots of walks. Thanks to all of you who suggested names, my kids are REFUSING to let me give him a new name, they think the one he came with is just fine. I will keep you posted:) Thanks also for your birthday wishes. My kids had a sleepover last night so my darling husband took me to Roy's, yum! I got my molten chocolate lava cake, woohoo! Two birthday dinners, you can't beat that!

On to the card. This is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I was very happy to ink this set up, it makes me smile. Many times I can't quite capture sparkle on a card. I think this time is looks like I went totally overboard with sparkle, don't you love it! I stamped the image with Black StazOn on Papertrey white cs and colored the bike with watercolor pencils and a blender pen. The tires and the doodles were done with a sparkly silver Sakura Pen. I then added Crystal Stickles. The flower and the black bookplate are from Heidi Swapp. I was going to do a few more cards for the limited supply challenge, but again no attention span, I really have to get it together. Have a beautiful Easter weekend my stamping friends.

Thanks for stamping by!

Actually, gnats probably have a long attention span--what else do they have to think about!lol

Love your Spring card, so soft and elegant. Happy Easter!

What a nice card. The bicycle reminds me of spring - which hopefully is almost here.
