Well I cant remember who said it, so I cannot give the credit - "you have to be in it to win it". I am having a go so you never know I might be lucky or I might not but one thing for certain if you don't try you dont stand a chance!

Lilly-Boo's images are great to work with and great value. £1.99 gets you a set of six images that are totally resizeable and could be computer coloured as well as coloured by hand, the choice is yours. Do pop in and have a look at her images there are a couple of freebies so you can try your hand.
The recipe for this card was to colour the image using Promarkers and then cut out the image (still need to work on this cutting out thing!). I then cuttlebugged the 'for a day' and inked it over with a blue inkpad to tone with the backing paper which is from a nursery pad for boys. I also inked a matt white piece of card with the same blue ink pad and also a yellow inkpad and then embossed it with the Happy Birthday cuttlebug folder and pieced the mats together on a white card base. The cut out boy and bike I put on with dimension pads. I did consider in my minds eye using silicone and trying to distort the shape of the front tyre but I thought that might look better in my minds eye and not work out in reality, so being short of time I did not take the risk I played safe.
I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, thanks for dropping in.
