Sadly this isn't a brilliant picture but I was in a rush to get the card posted to my friend. It's a thank you card for inviting me to share in her 60th birthday celebrations. There was an art deco theme to her party and this image was on the napkins she used. It was so striking that I wanted to use it on her card so I scanned it. The image was layered onto silver holographic card as was the sentiment which I printed off myself. I used my SU punches and just so it wasn't too flat layered it with sticky pads.
I think it fits the criteria for the following challenges.
I Did it Creations - Keep it Simple
The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes
Thank you for looking

I made this card for my brother whose main hobby (apart from supporting Blackpool FC) is cycling. His idea of a fun day out is a bike ride and 60 miles plus isn't unusual, I'd think twice about going that far in a car! When I saw this die cut from LOTV I knew I had to have it. The Tour of Britain cycle race starts this weekend in Rochdale with the first leg finishing in Blackpool before they move on round the country. It's an awesome sight to see the Pelaton whizz past you so if it comes near you do take the time to go & have a look. Anyway, I digress, sorry, the map that I used as backing paper shows the route of the first leg, I matted the die cut onto red card to match his jumper and used the same to back the Craftwork cards sentiment. My SIL said my brother loved the card & instantly recognised the route & why I'd done it so I'm chuffed - job done!
I'd like to enter the card in these challenges:
Lily of the Valley Thursday Challenge - One for the Boys
Crafty Creations challenges - Challenge 84 Transportation
Cards for Men - Challenge 18 Long Summer Days
Thank you for looking!
