New Die-Cut Reveal at Stuck on You Sketches: It's Spring!

Hi there!
It's the Die-Cut team's reveal day over at Stuck on You sketches.
To me, nothing says spring like hauling your bicycle out after a long winter, so I decided to use a die-cut bicycle.  And of course, we can't forget spring flowers, so I punched out lots of those as well.
I used up lots of My American Crafts Mayberry collection, which has lots of summer accents.  I think the colors go well with spring, too.  I had this picture of Lucie dyeing eggs for easter; hence the title, "She's a good egg".
Boy, did I have fun with the basket on the bike.  First, I drew a shape on paper that I wanted my punches, etc. to go in.  I cut out the shape and used it as a stencil for some splatters of red spray ink.  Is there anyone else out there who decides on spray ink after the pictures are glued down?
After the ink dried, I added little punched flowers and hearts...and liquid pearls dabbed in the center of the flowers finished it off!
This is such a fun challenge---I hope you play along with us!
Head over to Stuck on You Sketches to see how the rest of the team interpreted "Spring".  Should be fun!  Have a great day!
