One for the boys

The Challenge this week at Allsorts is 'One for the boys'. I made a card for a colleague who was doing a sponsored bike ride and whose birthday is next week, and it definitely fit the bill! I didn't have a cyclist stamp so I found a clip art silhouette and popped it in the middle of some smooth white printing card. I then used ink dusters, Inkylicious stamps and mountain valley stencils to create a little scene around him. I am quite pleased with the result!
A huge welcome to my 16 new followers! To all my followers, thanks for your support and kind comments.
Before I go I want to share some photos from a walk last weekend. We walked around the Teversal Trails. It is almost five miles and at this time of year there are plenty of orchids around, as well as other wild flowers... Take a look...

Hope you enjoyed that! Thanks for looking!
