Postage Due

This is my card for October's Monthly Challenge for the Creative Card Chicks.  This group is a kind of mystery image swap, where we each get an image and additional items to complete the challenge each month. Sue is the hostess this month and she sent us this great image, along with some of the smaller images from the same set, which I used inside.  Sue also sent some sweet patterned paper along with the baker's twine and butterflies.  

I was not sure what to do with such a large image that has little to really color.  So, I grabbed a couple of sponges and inked the wheels of the bike with Island Indigo and the lily with some Crisp Cantaloupe.  I am thinking the card looks a bit artsy!

The Creative Card Chicks to post our cards between the 21st and 23rd of each month--so if you check the blogs on my sidebars, you may see more of these wonderful creations!  Many of our members also post their card in our SCS thread--so you might find more there.  Maggie is up for the November Challenge.  Please be sure to come back to see what image she has sent!

This looks great - the sponging look is perfect with the design. Nicely done!

Wow Barb this is certainly not your usual but it is stunning. Well done on working 'out of the box' - love the sponging!
