40th Birthday I love Cycling

Good morning to all my lovely Friends and Followers and a special welcome to my new Google + follower Kelly . My card today is a commission card I made a while ago for one of my friends Son In Law who is a huge cycling fan.
I used a photo image for the focal point as all the cycling stamps I had seemed a bit young for him.I hope you like it its a change from Christmas cards.

Brilliant card Carole and would have been perfect for my son, who is mad on cycling. He recently completed a hundred mile ride to raise funds for a childrens' charity. Hugs, Carol S.xx

It's so hard to find good male card inspiration Carole, this is perfect for a cyclist who's too old for 'cute' and nice matching box too - really lovely work
Have a wonderful Christmas
