Bicycle....Bicycle...Bicycle, I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike!

I had so much fun making this card. The sketch is from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge Blog #60. I made the wheels by cutting them out using a file found on the Craft Edge-Sure Cuts A Lot forum and my cricut. I took two wheel frames and glue them together using a piece of 3M mounting foam. I then glue the rims together using crystal effects. I then outlined the rims with black liquid appliqué, let it dry then used my heat gun to pop it up to look like wheel tires. I used my Smooch Illuminate top coat to make the wheel spokes look shiny! I used long brads to attach them to the card, You can actually move the wheels! I love action on my cards! I used a PTI impressions plate to emboss the top and bottom pieces of cardstock. I added some ribbon and a bicycle charm. Such a fun card!
Due internet integrity...ie...anything that I post and then link to, I won't delete. So I reposted this post with the picture of the card after I fixed the ribbon. I am sure most of you are not bothered by the wrinkled ribbon, but I was. You can see the updated card here.

Hi Heidi, """CONGRATULATIONS"""@*!!! On your win you so deserve too as your card is Brilliant, Awesome. What I love about SSW is everyone comments on your cards. I've entered into Challenges and they can have up to 300 plus entries and you don't even get one comment. I've also entered into a Challenge where there has only been 40 entries and still no comments. Then they have the top 5 cards how can they have the top 5 when they haven't even looked at your card??? What I also like about SSW is the winning card isn't picked at Random like most challenges. Arlana chooses whom she thinks deserves it and has done a great job. We just need to get more people playing along with our challenges as we have some amazing sponsors. Take care have a great weekend and can't wait to see what you're going to do with this weeks sketch.
Hugs
