Happy Birthday Bicycle!

Today is my little brother's birthday...well, I can still call him that because he is younger than I am :-)
Happy Birthday Jim!
(seriously hope he doesn't see this as I haven't given him his card yet LOL)

He loves bike riding and so I pulled out my Old Fashioned Afternoon set to use for this quick and easy card.  The Retro Sketches challenge was used on this card and I let the paper do most of the work.

Card details:
Stamps: Old Fashioned Afternoon from Sweet Stamp Shop and Labels4Cutting from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Trendsetter Blue, My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Portobello
Inks: Memento London Fog, Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellishments: twine

Hope all is well...almost summer time here - lots going on but wanted to stop by and say hi
