Great minds think a bike!

My home town, Harrogate, is hosting the final of the first stage of the Tour De France this July,
so I had bicycles on my mind, when I saw this week's challenges at
Addicted to CAS - Wheels - and Less Is More - Round and Round.

 
I took inspiration from CAS(E) this sketch-  substituting their square centre shape for my circle, to continue the round theme,
and added dimension to my card, by popping up some elements on foam pads.


Challenges -
CAS(E) this sketch - #70
Less Is More - Round and Round
Addicted to CAS - Wheels
