I love to ride my bicycle!

Hello peeps! How goes it? Hope you all had a fun weekend.
Today I'd like to show you a card my Mum asked me to make from her to my uncle for his birthday. She picked the bike from Everyday Buttony Bits from Papertrey Ink as my uncle used to ride everywhere on his bike!

This is a bit of a change of style for me- as you can see- not much colouring!! Shock horror!! I quite like the simplicity of this though, what dya think?
I did a minimal amount of colouring in and the wheels for the bike were made using the Papertrey Ink button die. Papers are by My Mind's Eye. Sentiment is also PTI and the banner was made using the MFT mini banner die.
I'd like to enter this into:
Cards for Men- anything goes
Paper Playtime- anything goes
Crafty stash used: Stamps (PTI); Watercolour pencils; Copics; Papers (MME); Assorted cardstock; Banner (MFT); Brad (Home Sense); Ribbon; Button die (PTI)
