Spring Bicycle Happy Birthday

Hello My Crafty Sweets!

I've missed you all.  Haven't been able to get in the craft room for a little bit, but was finally able to swing it today!

I've got a sweet, spring-ish birthday card to share today.

My inspiration to create it was a combination of 3 different challenges!  First, I love Simon Says Stamp challenges.  The chance at a $50 gift card to the Simon Says Stamp store appeals to me greatly!  Their challenge is "A Bit O' Green."  You have until 3/13 and can enter up to 5 projects...more chances to win!  And you need all the chances you can get because there are always hundreds, if not thousands of entries!

Secondly, who wouldn't love a Ribbon Carousel?  I most definitely would!  So I'm entering my card in the Ribbon Carousel Challenge 78 "Spring Is In The Air."  You have until 3/31, so if you need a really awesome way to display/hold your ribbon, get after it!  Don't forget to use ribbon on your project!  My lavender flower was part of a larger piece of ribbon that was too big for the card, but loved the color, so I snipped it off and used it as a single ribbon flower.  Doesn't this bicycle with its basket full of flowers scream SPRING?!

Last, but certainly not least, my honeycomb background was inspired by a challenge at Moxie Fab World:  Emphasize the Negative.  You have until 4/1 to enter a project, so (say it with me) go get your (negative) craft on! :)
