Bike Race

Well, most of today is over, church anniversary went well and all our songs were okay. We had 3 trumpeters in the balcony, They were fantastic! We had lots of rain but luckily it stopped enough to get to and from the car each time. Had lunch out again with Mum, Aunty Cynthia and my youngest daughter, Rachel. I popped into a craft store before coming home to pick up some liquid pearls for a friend and also picked up a couple of lovely DSP's and a stamp.
Today's card is for the Unstampabelles Challenge #2 - the theme is Wheels and as a bonus challenge, you can use the Spirelli technique. You are not allowed to use stamps at all for these challenges,
I've used a textured green cardstock from stash, white card with a piece of dark brown cardstock, which was put through a Tim Holtz embossing folder, "bricks" and then town, I've distressed the white piece with SU "Early Espresso" ink and added the motorbike sticker and also the black and white flags sticker, LOL, these have been in the stash for at least 6-7 years. I knew that they would come in handy eventually, LOL.
I did make a spirelli piece - it's also ink distressed, I used gold metallic thread to wind with and wrote the Happy Birthday sentiment in black marker.
Thanks again for stopping by and to those who comment on posts, thankyou, I enjoy reading your comments.
Take care,

  4. What a fantastic card Sandy,,,,,the motorbike sticker and embossed dirt mound he is climbing work so well together. And great use of the spirelli too.
