Going For A Spin

I have a great big box full of Sugar Nellie stamps, and for some reason, I've not used them in ages , I can't say why just haven't! Well there are a lot of sporty challenges in blog land at the moment ,the only sports ,if you can call them that ,I do , are walking and cycling, so I fished out this neglected stamp.
It's called "going for a spin" a 2008 design by Elizabeth Bell, for Sugar Nellie. I've coloured in bold markers to match the papers, papermania happy days 12x12 pad, the sentiment is from the same pad and so are the raised flowers.The corner is folded and a brad added , all mounted on yellow bazil card.

Love the bold colours you have used and the paper is so pretty.
I have this stamp too but don't think I have ever inked her up! Must dust off my old stamps and use them.
