On yer bike

Good Morning all,

I finally made it to the cinema last night and although the film was pretty rubbish (The five year engagement) it was great to get out and have a bit of me time. I did a little crafting before I went last night and have just finished another little card so I have two to share with you this morning so here is the first:

I have used a fab image from Sliekje and coloured her with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers. As the theme over at Cupcake this week is Le Tour De France I have given her the famous yellow shirt. The backing paper is from Papermania and as it has orange in it I have used orange and brown to finish off my colouring. I have followed the sketch over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp and for the circle I used a paper doilie. I think it helps to break up the colour a little. The lace is a newbie to my stash I got a big box of all different ones off ebay and they were so cheap. I want to get more but I really don't need it as I have enough to open a shop already. I have added a little bit of ribbon from my stash and my old favourite, yep you guessed it Candi. The small flowers are Primas and the big flower started off cream but I added some Promarker to make it fit the card. I got a big bunch of them from my local craft warehouse. I think cream is the way forward as I can make them any colour I need. I have added some little pearls and finished with a handtyped sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft - Le Tour De France
Papertake Weekly - All things girlie
Crafty Catz - Olympics - cycling
Sunday Sketch - Sketch
