What a guy!

Good afternnon all.  OMG I am having the worst day!  My computer died last night, just cut out and did some majorly weird stuff.  New it was on the fritz but thought I had a bit more time.  Anyway, I have managed to start it this morning and am trying to back up all my beloved digistamps.  NOT GOING WELL!!!!.    I need a miracle!  any one got one going spare? 

I am going to try and post this card as I am actually on here but If it doesn't load properly bear with me please!

I have used a dotty embossing folder for the background and trimmed all the corners with a corner punch.
You may have noticed the image is not coloured, this is for a specific challenge at My partner in crafting crime! and also shows that Karen's digi's are so fab they don't need colours.  I have inked around the main white image sheet with orange brown and black.

The image is from Karen's doodles called 'born to ride' I have wrapped 2 colours of thread around the bottom of the image and hung a charm motorcycle form mystash.  I have added brads to the corners.

The sentiment was a freebie from a website, but I have lost itat the moment (sorry, if you know where it came from please let me know!)  It has beeninked around the edge with orange brwon and black.

The flower I have made myself using the same thread and a button!

I will be entering this card into thefollowing challenges It's all about the boys

Thanks for stopping by
