Bicycle Made For Two

Well I just can't remember when I last made something that was not for a DT so this morning was a pure joy.
For this birthday card I first embossed some lime green paper with a chevron pattern.
 Next I mounted the embossed paper and some blue card on the green card blank.
Oh I don't like this - the green card blank look as if it had been ironed so flat.  Right how to solve the issue.  Out with a stencil and airbrush with a dark green Promarker - thats better <g>
 A while ago I made some texture paste so, on a piece of mottles brown card I applied some round the edges.  This section will represent 'dirt' on the card later.
While the texture paste was drying it was onto colouring the digi - Just Inklined's Bicycle Made for Two. This image came on a Just Inklined CD I bought last year in their sale, isn't it just brilliant :) :) :)
 Promarkers used.
 Now the textured paste part was dry I airbrushed it with two shades of brown Promarkers.
 Next I rubber stamped trees in greens and blacks and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Some brown gingham ribbon was added and the the 'dirt' layer.
 TO finish off I created a sentiment to around the base of the digi and fussy cut the digi (that was not a good idea - it took ages, but I think it was worth all the effort.
