CAS-ual Fridays Round & Round

The challenge this week at CAS-ual Fridays is Round & Round.  Your entry needs to feature two circles in a CAS style.  I was so bummed that I missed last week’s challenge.  I had high hopes of entering….but have a serious lack of pink in my household!  For this week's challenge I inked up a bicycle stamp that had yet to see ink.  The wheels are my choice for the two circles.

The little flower charm on  my card was a blog candy gift from Scrapbook Sisters.  They are located in the UK, but were so kind as to ship the blog candy to the US.  They sent along a great packet of goodies....but a collection of little charms is my fav!  I thought this little flower charm went along great with the phrase on my card.  The bicycle stamp is part of the Pair-A-Phrase stamp set.  The stamp set has been retired.....but I do have a new set for sale on My For Sale page!

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

CC1014 Pair-A-Phrase
1385 White Daisy Cadstock
1272 Cranberry Cardstock
Baker's Twine-SU
Tuxedo Black Ink-Memento
Copics-See photo

Ok, this seems like an insane amount of markers for such a little image!  I just kept adding colors until it looked right!  It is hard to tell from my photo, but I went over the bike spokes and chain with my Spica pen to add a little chrome.

I have entered this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Ribbons -Clean & simple
Just Some Lines -Clean & simple
Simon Says Stamp -Sporty/patriotic

Thanks for stopping by!
