New digistamp at Digistamps4Joy - "Bicycle"

I drew this stamp "Bicycle" for the shop, thinking what on earth am I going to make with this. Yet it was actually quite fun, and I can now see quite a few possibilities. At least 'real' bicycles now come in such a range of colours that this image could easily be adjusted for boy, girl, or vintage cards.

The bicycle was coloured in with alcohol pens and 'platinum' Stickles glitter glue added to the bicycle frame (yes, I used it again!).  The sentiment was created on the PC, and various die cuts and punches were used. Those funny little pink shapes in the corners are actually the bits that normally get thrown out when I diecut a specific shape (not used here), but I glittered them up and stuck 3 down in each corner. What do you think - does it work?
New items used - new digistamp
Old items used - gem flowers, paper from stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Allsorts - for a lady
Kraftin Kimmie stamps - springy pastel colours
Catch the bug - anything goes
Totally gorjuss - anything goes with pink
Picture and scrap - pastel colours
Lady Annes - anything goes sentiment
