City Crafter 4th Anniversary Challenge/ SSS Monday challenge

I cannot believe it is Thursday! My husband and Daughter went away on Saturday night, so I'm home alone with my son and dogs and thought I'd get lots of crafting done. However , my Mum's been unwell and  needs daily visits and there's been other coming and going with friends and school holidays, so unfortunately my mojo is on a go slow!!!

I do have one card to share today. I made this for the City Crafter challenge, which is to case one of 4 projects. This is the one I chose.

And this is my card ...

My card has less layers, but I've included the bicycle, some machine stitching, similar colours and I used twine instead of seam binding. I actually had some lace on this card originally, but it just wasn't me - I am more of a CAS girl these days. Happy Birthday to the team at City Crafter - thanks for all your inspiration!

I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Monday Challenge as the theme is 'Journey'.

By the way, it's been raining for 3 days, so I've been taking my photos inside, in the evening, so I apologise if it's a bit dark in the background.
