I really liked this (older) sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and it was perfect for the small sized stamp I had in mind:
and here's my card....
Sorry for the poor photo quality.....I just could not get a good shot of this card and this one from my phone ended up being the best I could do. Gesh! Anyway, I used the little bike stamp from Sheltering Tree and a sentiment from a retired set called Pedaling Past. You might be wondering about my color choices here....the bike is Pool Party because it is a tribute to my husband's beloved Bianchi bike. Bianchi bikes are famously painted a color called Celeste Green which is a greenish-aqua very similar to Pool Party. When I showed DH the color choices and asked him to pick the one closest to Celeste, he went with Pool Party! This card is pretty simple but the little squares have a nifty little detail. After I stamped the images on a piece of white cardstock, I cut them out with a square framelit. Before I popped it out of the framelit, I traced around the inside edge with a Pool Party marker to make the border. It is a small detail that just makes the squares stand out more. I also colored the smallest pearls with my Silver Stampin' Write marker to make them look like wheel hubs. DH was impressed with that detail! :-)
