Bicycle....Bicycle...Bicycle, I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike! Take 2

I fixed the ribbon on the card, and I am reposting for posterity!

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!
