Love on a Bike

Good evening crafters and followers.  What an absolutely lousy day here in West Midlands.  Started off good but went downhill very fast.  But it is the start of the August Bank Holiday so what can we expect!
My card today is using a stamp from Lily of the Valley.  I have stamped and embossed the image and coloured it in with spectrum noirs.  Die cut it out and then inked around the edge with antique linen distress ink.  The backing papers were from my crafty stash and you may not be able to see it but there is a white organza ribbon around the patchwork strip.  This is true crafting recycling because it was actually from a very nice perfume box that hubby bought me for a birthday a couple of years ago. 
He was a little upset at the time I remember because when I opened the pressie the first thing I did was take the ribbon off and put it in my crafty stash then I proceeded to open the box to see the perfume.  Bless him, he fully understands now that lots of things can be recycled into my craft room.  The perfume was nice too I might add.
Well I do hope you like my card for today.  Thank you so much for stopping by and you all take care.
