Sheltering tree with heat embossed bicylcle frame

I just love how the bicycle frame just POPs with its bold colors on top of the tree trunk.  I had planned on doing it with Pool Party EP but it retired so I used Cherry Cobbler EP instead and I love it!

The base card is Blushing Bride with Pear Pizazz on top.  Stamp the tree from Sheltering Tree with Early Expresso.  Then ink Blushing Bride for the leaves then "rock and roll" it using Cherry Cobbler to accent the edge of the leaves.  I then used the little dots to add extra pear pizazz leaves randomly.   I then stamped the grass then the bicycle with Memento black because it dries quick.. I then tapped the embossing buddy to make sure the card was dry then inked the bicycle frame with versamark then heat embossed it using Cherry Cobbler embossing powder which just makes it a stand out.  If it had an accessory stamp for a little tiny basket in the front with options for books, flowers or bottle of wine and bread, it would have been a perfect set! I just love bicycle stamps and have been known to buy every one I find and this one especially is so sweet with the tree.....
Maybe they will make a Sheltering Tree accessories set with a bicycle built for 2,  baskets like I said, a park bench to put under the tree and a little sled to lean against the tree in the dead of winter.... I could just go on and on!
