On yer bike!

Morning peeps. Hope Tuesday finds you well and happy.
 No work today so I am extremely so!!
Surprise and I have just taken in the morning air with friends and a bit sticky it was too! Now it's a trip to the hairdresser. I had to cancel last week because of that washing machine engineer (grrr) so consequently I look like an old english sheepdog!! 

Anyway here is my card for today...another "attempt" at shabby chic/vintage.....I really don't get it!!

I used some digi papers that have been on my computer for yonks, Raspberry Road Family Ties, which I roughed up and inked. The stamp is by Dreamees ( I can't rate these highly enough SUCH brilliant value & quality). I made the roses myself using scraps of the same papers. Cotton lace with a pearl buckle and a couple of pins, ooh and I tore the paper and stapled a different one behind the tear. Is that shabby enough for you!!? You will find my card at these challenges...
