Poppin' a Wheel-ie!

I never was one to really "pop a wheelie" with my bike when I was a kid (too scared!), but that's the phrase that came to mind when trying to describe this card. Often times, wheeled images are used as backgrounds, but this Doodles Wheel is too pretty to relegate to that!

I inked up the jumbo wheel in Sage Shadow and tacked down a 2" x 4" piece of Whisper White on one of my SU! grid sheets. I also used my wheel guide to further insure straightness. After that was completed, I colored the flowers in Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, SS, and Pretty in Pink, all from the Soft Subtles color family. I used my 2-way glue pen to create a sticky surface for Dazzling Diamonds, and tied a little white ribbon around the whole thing. Then I layered SS and Perfect Plum behind it. It needed something else, so I made another layer using my Dots Wheel and Pretty in Pink ink.

I'm leaving this one blank for now. Who knows what I'm going to need this month, and having something I can customize on hand is always good!
