Biker Chic Birthday....

Hi Susan here....

I am extremely happy to announce that I am now part of Lexi's Creations design team, this is my first card as part of this fabulous team!!!!

It is the start of another fabulous challenge over at Lexi's Creations and theme is 'Emboss It'. Our sponsor for this challenge is 'Fairy Dust Crafts' and they are offering the winner 5 images of their choice. You can find all the details of this challenge HERE, but if you like to emboss whether its dry embossing or heat embossing this is your challenge and you should head straight over to Lexi's Creations and join in the fun. Short of inspiration, you won't be when you see what the amazing design team has to offer!!!!

Now to my card.... I have used an older sketch from Sketchy Colours, so great for what I had in mind for this particular image. My backing papers are from a CD from Create and Craft called Lavender and Lace. It has the most gorgeous backing papers plus lots of other goodies. I used a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder to emboss the strips of patterned card. All edges of my backing papers have been distressed.

My fabric covered brads and gems are all from my stash.

This gorgeous digi image is one of Lexi's and she is called 'Biker Chic Brooke' and you can buy her from Lexi's Doodles. I used Pro-Markers and chalks to colour her in and then gently inked the background before I distressed the edge of the topper. I mat and layered the topper onto an embossed and distressed mat and then onto a plain coloured distressed mat.

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

My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the colours were just amazing and totally matched my backing papers.

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
