Sweet bicycle card 
By Sue Smyth 

Hi Bloggers, today I have a quick easy card for you 
with a spring touch.

Cut out the largest label from a 14 x 14 cm cream cardstock base.
Make sure you have the folded edge inside the cutting edge
of the die so it remains intact and there 
you have a neat folded base.
Trim off one on the ends to give the card a flat base

Cut the next size down with patterned paper, adhere to front of 
card base and fold semi circular shape up. Attach to front of
card with a little 3 D foam tape.

Die cut a scalloped circle and nested circle from cream and 
pale green cardstock.

Die cut a bicycle from cream cardstock, add glitter
to areas of the bike.
Also cut a small piece of lace from pink cardstock, ink edges
and adhere to bottom of card. 
Adhere all pieces in place and decorate as above.

This card can be made almost from scrap cardstock and papers.
