I Want to Ride My Bicycle Challenge and Color Throwdown #96

Happy monday!  I have a little card to share inspired by the I Want to Ride My Bicycle Challenge in the Moxie Fab World and Color Throwdown #96.  Check out the breezy and summery throwdown colors:
I got my bicycle on for this challenge with a cool vintage bike image from the Graphics Fairy.  I was able to change the black and white drawing to a pumpkin orange in Word and then print and detail cut it out. 
I saw the perfect sentiment last night as I browsed my most recent issue of Papercrafts.  I also printed that in Word and then cut it apart and arranged it over the happy designer papers from My Minds Eye.
A simple pearl accented pin dressed up my bright pumpkin ribbon. 

Thanks Moxie Fab and Color Throwdown for the creative inspiration today!  I have a couple more bicycle cards in the works.  I can't wait to share them!  How knew I was so inspired by bicycles?  On that note, better get *rolling*........LOL  Thanks for coming by my corner of the blog world today!

Supplies:
Paper: My Minds Eye and Papertrey
Bike image: THe Graphics Fairy blog
Quote: Papercrafts
Font: typewriter
Craft supply: pearls, seamstress pin, ribbon
