On yer bike!

LIM card - version 4.0    -    Photograph  - version 35 !!!  
Thank God for digital cameras!


This card took several attempts before I was happy with it. The bicycle is from the Graphics Fairy, printed onto cream card (that's hard to see in the photo). I chopped a bit off the image, so that it would fit the 'square' better and decided I liked it more like that anyway. Then it was mounted onto a white card base. The 'Happy Birthday' is a Wild Rose Studio stamp.

I really love how this turned out, so I am going to search out some similar images and make a series of these.

Challenges
Less Is More - Pick a Square. 
Secret Crafter - Clean & Simple
and a challenge that is new to me  Paper Sundaes - Vintage or Shabby Chic.
I've used the vintage bicycle clip art.
