I was totally inspired to make this after spending the day riding my bike at a near by park with my family!

Bike from Stretch your imagination. I added GLITTER around the flower and a fun flower CHARM to make the basket look fun.
Clouds are cut from April showers, they were inked then I ran them through my Cuttlebug with the Divine Swirls EMBOSSING folder and MISTED  them with iridescent gold Glimmer Mist.
The Grass is from Fiskars Border Punch Grass, layered and inked
Little butterflies are from a punch
