Let Me Pedal for a While

May is National Bike Month, so the Paper Players have a bicycle themed challenge this week. Luckily, I still have that super cute bicycle stamp from Sale-a-Bration.

Let Me Pedal by Yapha

Stamps: Pedal Pusher
Ink: Archival Basic Black, Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Tip Top Taupe
Paper: Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White, Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper
Other: Watermelon Wonder 1″ Stitched Satin Ribbon

I folded the ribbon in half, because I love it, but it was too wide for the card. I thought this patterned paper looked a little like tire tracks. What do you think?
