Heart to Heart Challenge: Get your Kraft on!

Happy Sunday!
Can you believe it is almost Thanksgiving?  Where has the year gone?  At least we had a very nice Fall here in Michigan.  Alas, the cold has finally arrived though.  
Today I needed to get a card made for daughter.  She will turn 26 on Nov. 29th.  I need to get her box in the mail since she lives 8 hours away.  I am a bit bummed that we won't see her over the holiday this week because she has to work.  At least we will get to see her for a week at Christmas. Anyway, on to the card.
I decided to follow the Heart To Heart Challenge that is to use kraft cardstock.  I think I got that covered   Here is the link to the challenge:
I used the bicycle stamp from the CTMH set called "Enjoy the Ride".  I stamped the bike, flower basket and saying with Momento ink.  I then colored with alcohol markers.  I masked the word "like" from the greeting with a sticky note.  I then I punched a heart to put where "like: would be.  I added some pattern paper to the side from the "Frosted" CTMH paper collection which is now retired.  To add a little interest I used the shimmer brush (CTMH) on the flowers and on the patterned paper.  I also distressed the edges with ink and a sponge.  That's about it.  I hope she likes it.  I had to make her a bicycle card since she doesn't own a car and prefers to bike to work.  She is in St. Louis so it's easy for her to use public transit or her bike.  Thanks for stopping by.

VERY cute! Love this stamp set and have never purchased it; for whatever reason. Maybe I need to do so now because you truly inspired me.

Thanks for playing with us at Heart 2 Heart!
