I Want To Ride My Bicycle.....

Good evening everyone....

Its been a very long day today, a 10 hour shift for my first day back at work......but I have a yet another card to share tonight....

I made this card for my partners birthday tomorrow.....he loves his cycling and does quite a bit of off road/mountain biking when he has time....Its become a bit of a joke as whenever I make him a card there is usually a Magnolia Edwin image on it, this is due to the fact that quite a few people have mentioned in the past that he looks like Edwin..... especially when he wears his glasses.....Aww Bless!!!




The papers are Kaisercraft...'Shaken Not Stirred' and I have coloured using Promarkers.  The sentiment is from LOTV. I have used some twine and a little bicycle charm and added pearls from The Hobby House. Finally I added some glossy accents to the bike to make it shiny.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:~

Allsorts Challenge ~ # 143 ~ Its Your Choice
Cupcake Craft Challenge ~ # 181 ~ Boys And Their Toys!
Sketch Saturday Challenge ~ # 16 ~ A Sketch
