Enjoy the ride

Today I made a couple of special request cards for my oldest daughter. She is a volunteer training captain for the South Texas chapter of the Team In Training (TNT) cycle team. TNT is the fundraising branch of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. In return for training for an event the participants raise funds. The cycle team is training for the Armadillo Hill Country Classic a 105 mile ride through the Texas Hill Country in 2 weeks time. These card will be given to 2 of the participants who are riding in the event for the first time.

The TNT colors are purple and green but I didn't have a lot of purple to work with. I thought that these Penny Black images were perfect with the birds taking a ride! On the green card I ran the green CS through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. I think this is the folder I use the most! I colored the images with Prismacolor pencils. Although it doesn't show up in the picture I used Diamond Stickles on the zebra's feet and the turtle and on the elephants spots and toe nails. The sentiments are computer generated.
