Valentine - Wednesday Stamper

I made this card for this week's Wednesday Stamper challenge! This week's theme/challenge was to create a Valentine. You can access the challenge (and all the great cards!) by reading the Valentine post at http://wednesdaystamper.wordpress.com/. For my card, I used justjohanna's Pedal Vendor stamp. As soon as I saw this stamp, I knew I *NEEDED* it! I haven't seen anyone else use this stamp, but come on...the possibilities are endless! Think of all the creatures that could ride the bicycle and the great little things you could put in the basket! Cupcakes! Fruit! Birds (especially with a kitty driving)! Kitties (especially with a little birdie driving)! Money! You get the picture... I punched some red hearts with the retired SU! folk heart punch. I still love that thing. I cut a slit in the basket with my craft knife and tucked the hearts into the basket.
I know that the colors on this card are a little nontraditional, but I think that is why I like it. The red hearts pull it back to Valentine's Day, and the idea of a heart vendor...Well, very Valentiny!
Thanks for visiting.
