Summer Days at Sugar Creek Hollow

Well it certainly isn't very summery here in the North East UK but nice to be able to make something to remind us of Summer Days. The challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is to do just that so I made a card with something I always enjoyed doing when I was kid. Bike rides in the summer holidays meant adventures for me.

I used a big sponge swirl for the background then distressed the edges with Rangers, broken china, distressed ink. The image was a free digi image which I painted in pale shades. The circles are cutout of a paper tray cover.  That's about it really apart from lace, ribbon, buttons and a die cut flower
