Bicycle Bliss


The background paper is Lozzy's Vintage Man design, 
due to be released on November 4th.

I love these bicycles, and I can think of nothing better than free wheeling down a hill with the wind blowing through my hair - something I loved as a teen.

I immediately thought of this Vintage Lady on Bicycle stamp from a local company (unfortunately I cannot find it on their website) when I saw the paper.

I coloured her with Prismcolor pencils, and the bicycle with markers.

The scripture digi was from TLC Creations, cut with a MB stitched rectangle die and sponged with Mustard Seed DI

A trim of ribbon and some rhinestones finished the card.

    Just planting your sweetpeas really surprised me, ours are put in late autumn here. Different everywhere. Our summer would be too hot for them to grow, it's going to 34 this Sat according to weather forecast, hope they have it wrong.
