Pile it on at Phindys Place

Hi everyone, its Friday again and that means its time for another challenge over at Phindys Place and this week the theme is 
Pile It On!!!
So we want to see your cards with lots going on, the total opposite to Clean and Simple.
This is totally my style so I  had fun with this one!
I used Biking Babe and coloured her with copics, adding some stickles to her shoes for sparkle.
The papers are First Edition Spring Drop and I used my sewing machine for the stitching.
The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and the butterflies are a Martha Stewart Punch.
The swirl is from Cheery Lynn as is the Corner.
The flowers and the seam binding are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the lace is from my stash.





So if you like adding lots of 'stash' to your creations then why not come and join in our fun Challenge.
You don't need to use a Phindy image but we love it when you do!!!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafting for all Seasons - Many Layers
Cute Card Thursday - Planes, Trains and Automobiles (hope bikes count...)
Pixie Dust Studio Challenge - Summer
Shellys Images - Pick two (I have ribbon/flowers)
