Recipe for Success - Die Cut Diva Style

Paula has challenged the flickr group Die Cut Divas to a recipe challenge.  My first thought was I'm not cooking.... second thing I did was read the recipe... all over at the Die Cut Diva flickr group..  Here's the recipe:

Nestie, die cutter of some kind or embossing folder
Ribbon,
Ink & lastly
2 embelishments like buttons, flowers etc.

As Paula says "easy peasy".  I used my Nestie, ribbon, inked up a Hero Arts (HA) stamp from "Joy RideCL481, punched a hole at the end of each handle bar to add floss for streamers.  and added a couple of pearls to the wheels.  The bottom layer is stamped with HA "Envelope PatternS5507 to add a bit of texture to that layer.  The other two layers are my recycled tissue boxes.  I've had the stamped image and two die-cuts layered for two months and didn't have a clue how I was going to use them.  Yesterday morning I knew I had to make the card the way you see it.  Sometimes it works and.... well, they always work, don't they?
