Spectacular at 70.....

This card is for a lady soon to be celebrating her 70th Birthday. She keeps fit by cycling and often goes abroad on cycling holidays with her Husband. Among other things she also enjoys Zumba so as you can see I couldn't resist a little bit of humour  and I have inserted a cartoon on the inside flap of the card. I'm sure she'll enjoy it !
I have several bicycle images in my digi collection but none of them suitable as they all had children on them. I found this bicycle image at Rhoda Design Studio and coloured it with Copics to make it a bit more feminine. There are 4 images in the bundle.
The paper is from Papermania, the metal corners and flowers all from Wild Orchid Crafts. Organza ribbon from Mei Flower and I also used the arch border punch from Martha Stewart.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today, I hope you enjoyed being here.
Happy crafting
