On yer bike !

I have always thought of "on yer bike" as a piece of Aussie slang, but just 'googled' and found that it is, of course, quite probably English in origin, along with 'sling yer hook" no doubt. 
 
Many of the challenges seem to be male oriented at the moment - or maybe it just seems that way because they require a bit more thought.  However, the latest challenge at Seize the Birthday certainly is for a masculine card and this is my entry.
 
I loved the look of the "Feeling Sentimental" stamp set from SU as soon as I saw it and have managed to make quite a few cards for the guys in the last week or so.

 
Stamps:  SU Feeling Sentimental
Card:  Basic Gray
Ink:  Stazon jet black; Gumball Green
DSP:  Howlstooth and Scaringbone; Print Poetry
 
I'm still wondering if the green should have been at the bottom, but too late now because  I am pedalling off.
