Saturday challenge day - woo hoo

Morning peeps,
Another lovely sunny day - perfect BBQ weather .... maybe later!!! Hope you have something similar where you are this morning.
Yesterday evening saw us heading to the surrogates for dinner, a lovely evening and (of course) it doesn't hurt that surrogate S-I-L is an executive head chef!!! Yummmmmmmm, accompanied by a few glasses of wine and the walk home went more easily too.
Fortunately, no thick heads in our house this morning, just as well since Saturday's are normally challenge days for me and I don't need a headache!!! I've made one card this morning which fits two challenges ...... the Simply Less Is More challenge this week is a One Layer Card with the theme "THE NEED FOR SPEED" and also the CASology challenge which is "WHEELS" - see what you think.
Materials used:
  • 14cm square white, 300 gsm, scallop edged card and matching sized envelope
  • 7 Gypsies train image stamped twice using Versafine onyx black (once on to a post it - used as a mask)
  • Inkylicious sunburst image stamped using Memento London fog
  • Imagine That sentiment stamped using Versafine onyx black
  • Hand drawn lines on the sunburst image (to simulate the train tracks)
As usual, I carried this design across to the envelope (front and back) and the insert.
Have a great Saturday
