Parchment Meadow Grasses

We are enjoying a beautiful sunny day today which certainly helps the year along - much nicer than grey days.  I have another parchment card to share - really enjoying my return to this craft as maybe you could guess.  Seasoned 'parchers' will probably also guess why I've added a tiny 3D butterfly to the bottom of the frame!!  This was done on blue parchment with some added colour from behind using Distress markers.

I'm popping over to the Playground today with this bicycle - definitely not riding it though which would be too difficult!!    A large snippet of music paper was chosen as a background;  penny farthing was stamped onto a snippet of card before cutting out with a circle die and a sentiment with two smaller circle snippets.  What really started me on making this card was the embossed snippet with the gears which I thought would be good for a male card and the rest just 'grew' from this which was just lying around unused.

Di has used an interesting die (no pun intended) to make her card for inspiration this time and of course that, with some sentiment stamps, is the prize on offer for one lucky person.
