Vintage Bike....

Hi there, Susan here....

Well can you believe Thursday is here already!!! Today at Digi Doodle Shops Best another great challenge has started and the theme is 'Anything Goes', love that type of challenge don't you, no restrictions on what you want to produce, great, and so easy!! You can read the full details of the challenge on the Digi Doodle Shops Best blog. The winner of this challenge gets $10.00 to spend in the amazing Digi Doodle Store, absolutely fabulous images to feast your eyes on!!

Come on over and join in the fun with all of us, the inspiration from all the DT girls is amazing!!

For my card I chose an older sketch from Friday Sketchers, such a great sketch! My backing papers were a mixture, the main background paper with the butterflies is from a CD from Artylicious and is called Butterfly Bliss, love this CD Rom, the colours are amazing for the papers. The rest of my papers are from stash, I distressed all the edges.

The double sided satin ribbon and pearls are all from our local market. The little blue butterfly is called a fly sticker, they come with a surround of holographic film, but I don't like it so I trim it off.

This great digi image is one of Digi Doodles Shops Best Vintage range and is called 'Vintage Bike'.

This is what the image looks like in the store!

I coloured the image with Pro-Markers, and gently inked the background of the topper before distressing the edges and mat and layering onto a punched background of deep red.

My sentiment was made on the computer, I distressed the edges and mat and layered onto card.

My flowers are a mix from Hobby Craft and Wild Orchid Crafts.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan
