Vintage bicycle

Another rainy morning here. I don't think we have had a day without rain at some point of the day since they announced the hosepipe ban.

I love making these vintage/shabby chic style cards and recently bought a gorgeous A5 sheet from Crafty Sentiments which has loads of useful stamps on it to create this look. The bike, watch and postage stamps are all from the A5 sheet. I stamped them with DI Vintage Photo onto kraft. Papers are Bo Bunny et cetera which I distressed. I used my fave MS cherish border punch and some seam binding which has also been coloured with Vintage Photo. I added some tiny buttons to finish.

This is a guest designer card for anything goes with kraft at Party Time Tuesday. At the moment this isn't showing up on their challenge but I have left them a comment.

This is a fantastic man's card Marianne, love the stamps you've used and the punched edge works brilliantly.

This card made me think of my uncle who never learnt to drive and used to go everywhere on a bike just like this one.
