BMX Silhouette

Arrgh - cards for boys! I think we all dread them a little bit!

Today I needed to make a card for a friend for her BMX bike loving 12 year old...

I searched through all my digi images and decoupage stuff to no avail - I simply couldn't find anything suitable. Then I had a light bulb moment - Mr Google helped me find a free silhouette. I printed the image directly onto the patterned paper. Some parts of the pattern still showed through so I carefully coloured over the image with a black pro-marker and a fine liner.

Yay - a very simple card but exactly what was needed!

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

The Corrosive Challenge #7 - anything goes July
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - July challenge 
Crafty Ladybirds - July anything goes
