Rosalie's bicycle

Rosalie decided to go for a ride around the farm in her bike :) and she took her sweet pup with her! Oh how he barked at the animals he saw!! :)

I love these Sarah Kays.. they give me so much good memories of time I used to spend at a friend's farm in my childhood! Actually I stayed for three consecutive summers there! Life in the farm is busy, but so peacefel and merry. I used to enjoy myself so much. And I also enjoyed myself colouring this image. I experimented a bit with the background.. different from my usual way. Do you like it this way? I'd like some sincere feedback from you please. I used watercolours for colouring this image.

Most of the stuff in this card is from Summer's store. Roses on Paper carries also this line of stamps.. and I love them. You can find them here. You won't find this stamp in the actual list (as it's out of stock), but she has already ordered them.. so stay tuned and list it in your wishlist! :)
You will get to see more Sarah Kays from me.. whoever knows me well; knows that I adore these tender images! :)

Also if you notice, one of the papers I used (the one at the bottom half) has a lot of bicycles on it.. I almost buried it with the other layers.. but if you click on the picture, I think it will show more. It's form the Basic Grey Cupcake Paper pad. Even the gorgeous striped paper is from that pack. I embossed the green Core'dinations textured cardstock with the swirls and stars folder, and then brushed it with a nailfile to get out the core. I love this cardstock. Flowers are Primas and Papermania. The sentiment is Circle of Friendship from Stamin'Up and ribbon, Pearl brads and fibre from stash. The lovely dewdrops are also from Roses on Paper. Scalloped edge is done with the Doily Lace Martha Stewart punch.

Thanks for looking
