Pedal Presents meets Sunny Challenges and Creations

Hi everyone,

So much for popping back sooner with another post for you. Over a week this time. I finally got into my craft room today for the first time in nearly two weeks. Yes I was having major withdrawals but unfortunately not everything went according to plan.

Anyway I did manage to produce this card.

It is using the new hostess set available in the Autumn-Winter Mini called Pedal Presents. I apologise for the quality of the photo but I only manged to photograph it this evening and we no longer have nice light evenings so can't use natural light and the flash went off. Believe me this is better than the one I took without the flash at least it is more or less in focus.

This card is for the Sunny Challenge and Creations blog this week. This week it is a sketch challenge and to use the colours Soft Suede, Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo and a neutral of Whisper White or Very Vanilla. Not a normal combination I would reach for but it works. The bicycle is stamped in Soft Suede and coloured in using Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise and the trusty blender pen. Note when I was making this card I kept singing Queen's hit "Bicycle" - probably because it is on my IPod and I had listened to it yesterday.

Here is the sketch for you to look at.

As you can see I turned the sketch on its side.

Anyway that is all I have for you today. Tomorrow is the schools Mothers Day stall so that is one less thing I need to worry about and hopefully means I will have a bit more time to spend in the craft room - I really must start on my convention swaps.

Thanks for looking.

'Til next time,

This is such a sweet card! I'm having the same trouble with my pictures. By the time I squeeze in time to take my pictures, it's already dark or a rainy day...
I had to smile at your song inspiration! I haven't heard that song in so long and now it's running through my head..."I want to ride my bicycle..." Thanks!!
