Just Run!

I found this free digi image on Digital Two for Tuesday a while ago, and really liked the horse galloping behind the motorcycle. I believe it was from an old Harley ad. I don't often do vintage, but this one intrigued me - probably because of the horse in the background ;)
Anyway, I added a few red accents with a marker, and shredded and distressed the ends to indicate burning up the road behind them. The background is smoky slate card stock with washi tape. I added a brad with checkered flags in one corner, and added a sentiment from a MFP stamp set that seemed perfect for this image. I punched the end of the sentiment panel with a SU! Mosaic punch for a little interest. I think there's someone out there who likes motorcycles, horses & speed and will enjoy this card - hopefully!

Thanks for checking in today, and I wish you all a great weekend!

Great image and I love that they are tearing up the road. Your racing flags are the ideal embellishment. It's going to be another scorcher today. Enjoy your weekend.

Wonderful image, Carol! Love the feel and the emotion you created with the distressing and the banners. I can almost feel the breeze, which would be quite welcome as our temperatures reach the 90's today!

I love that that site for images and have a few in my digi collection that I haven't used yet.
