Enjoy the Ride - Zindorf style

The first thing I thought when I got my hands on this stamp set was that it would be perfect for a Michelle Zindorf style card.   Unfortunately, I didn't commit to the larger size her style requires, so...
The ribbon was stamped a few days ago, just as an experiment. I didn't really intend for it to be on the card, but it was looking a little too symmetrical for my taste, and I needed to break it up.  The ribbon is ordinary cheap 1/4 inch satin ribbon, and I used plain black ink to stamp on it - the sentiment is from the same set as the bicycle.  It it took the ink really well!  Those are brads in the corners; they are reflecting light funny since I smashed them with a hammer.

You did a wonderful job on this. I love the sky (I am struggling with putting sky on my cards) and the ribbon is so clever. Smashed brads--how cool.
Makes me want to get my bike out and ride, ride, ride. :)
