Sweet Journey

Here is the beautiful inspiration photo this week.
Hi there!

Happy Friday to you!  Aren't ya glad the weekend is here?!  What sweet colors this week over at The Play Date Cafe!  Some of my favorite colors with red, blue, and pink.  So, I made the above card with one of my favorite Hero Arts stamps.  I couldn't resist having some fun with a few red hearts and  some red twine.  I popped up the bicycle and a couple hearts on dimensionals for added interest.  Also, I added the little love label on the back of the bicycle.  Ok, hope you have a great weekend and a wonderful Easter.  Thanks for looking and take care!
