Santa's on his bike!

I'm pleased to say that I have managed to get my CD Sunday entry ready a bit earlier this week, I seem to be making a habit of being a bit last minute lately!

The theme this week is 'On your bike!' and as soon as I saw it I knew exactly which image I was going to use.

I love this fabulous image from the Ooh La La Creations Christmas Presence CD, if you follow my blog you will have seen quite a lot of cards made using images from this CD.  The image and the papers are from the CD, I added some white Pebeo paint to the outside of the papers, I was attempting to make it look like snow but I'm not sure I succeeded.

I don't think these images need very much embellishing so I've just added some red (yes they are red!) pearls and some white ribbon, the sentiment is from LOTV.

I have decorated the inside of my card and you can see the layers on the image in this photograph as well:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The CD Sunday Challenge - On your bike!
Creative Corner Challenge 6 - For the Boys
Crafty Hazelnut's Extra Challenge - Anything goes as long as it's Christmas
Sparkles Christmas Challenge 25 - Anything goes
Crimbo Crackers Challenge 34 -Male
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 185 - What's Inside
Use Your Stuff Challenge 71 - Winter Wonderland (ribbon, pearls, paint, sentiment stamp all old stash and the CD is now over two years old)
Craft Us Crazy Challenge 35 - Get to Cutting and/or Favourite Technique (my favourite technique is adding dimension through layers/decoupage)

Thank you for visiting today, I hope your week is going well.

As you say, the image is such a decorative one, so a minimum of embellishments is required. Great clean design!
