Less is More 56 and ColourQ 125

Just squeaking in before the close of ColourQ 125 with a card for the current color challenge, as well as for the Less is More scrap challenge.  I pulled these scraps of color from my scrap box and used them to create a pattern of stripes in varying widths, which I used to ground the bicycle images from Hero Arts Joy Ride.

Hi Ann! As I peruse this weeks cards, I'm feeling much better about my scrap stash! LOL! Looks like most people have a pretty big pile of scraps! LOVE the card...that pieced border is fabulous! I love the bicycles too. I bought a stamp set a few months ago...that had a bicycle on it, but I notice (weeks later) that when I opened the package, the bicycle WASN'T in it!! I was so upset...and of course I didn't have my receipt, so I couldn't take it back! Bah!
