Summer Fun at V's Sweet Ideas

It's the first of the month again already, and time for a brand new and super FUN challenge at V's Sweet Ideas.  For the Month of June, we are celebrating SUMMER!  You can share anything having to do with summer - bright colors, water, flowers, or whatever makes you think of summer.  I chose to use a bicycle since my family and I enjoy going on bike rides in the Summer.
For this SUMMER card, I used several great products from V's Sweet Ideas including the Dear Lizzy Daydreamer grey bicycle patterned paper, dusty blue patterned paper, and coordinating bicycle card.  I also used the sweet grey flair with the white heart from the At Plus One Flair Set.  I machine stitched the edges, inked my card, and placed a big fluffy white bow made of May Arts Crinkle Ribbon with a matching blue Sweet Dot in the center.
The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on that speaks of SUMMER, and I thought that went nicely with the bicycles.  Our family always enjoys riding bicycles in the Summer, so this seemed like a perfect fit.  It should be another fun challenge, and I really hope that you will play along with us.

I'm sharing this card in the following challenges:
