CD Sunday - Up, Up and Away - chosen by me

Good Morning. The challenge for the next two weeks has been chosen by moi.  A wonderful opportunity to make a card for the fellas which is what I did.  The husband of a dear friend of mine had his birthday at the beginning of this  month so this was made with him in mind.

This all came from a CD by Joanna Sheen - Victorian Ladies & Gentlemen Disc 1.  I loved the image,. The man reminded me of one of the Marx Brothers.  When I posted this to our Admin site the girls were making comments about how fast he would have to pedal to keep the balloon up etc.  My son looked at the card and said it wouldn't matter how fast he pedaled the balloon wasn't big enough to hold him up anyway. Typical man!.
Anyway the large wheel is decoupaged and attached with a brad and does actually go round.

I enjoyed making this one and in fact might make it again for another gentleman of my acquaintance.

Please don't forget that you can now enter our challenges via Facebook - here and that we will be announcing our Top 3's in a separate posting a week after the challenge has finished - so my Top 3 will be announced on 11th March.

I look forward to visiting your Blogs and if you have enjoyed your visit here I would love to hear from you.
