OLW 100 whoo hoo!!!

Hi folks, It's a lovely warm summer's day here, I hope you're enjoying good weather where you are!
One Layer Wednesday is 100 posts old,  the challenge is at Cheryl's this week and the challenge is
Rules for OLW100

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers allowed!

2. Make a card using transportation as your theme. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum and NO ADDITIONAL LAYERS of card stock.
(There are more [rules, not layers LOL] on Cheryl's blog )

Here is my card

 I used
Tim Holtz Stamps, Purely Random and 7Gypsies Collections from the Journey, ink-Travel
A very small swipe of Pan pastels, Bright Yellow Green Tint and Phtalo Green Tint ( Oh! please tell me does anyone know how you pronounce that? )

If you are here to check out the colours that I used in my Twinchie?
They were
Mustard Seed
Picked Raspberry and..........................the blue was

Peacock Feathers      :0)  Didn't they blend well? I thought so LOL.

No-one got it perfectly right but Shirley was the first with two correct guesses, so the ink pad goes to her, please let me know your snail mail address Shirley :0) I will get that off to you toot sweet!!!!

Don't forget to check out the SALE over at the Craft Barn there are some real bargains to be had..................
We are gearing up for Christmas now and we have been buying loads of new goodies for you so we have arranged a massive sale to tempt you and (hopefully!) help us create some space.

Have a lovely weekend folks, hugs Gay xxx

Such a cute card. I am loving the bike image. Congrats to the winner for guess the colors. I had NO idea..
