CD Sunday - On Your Bike!

This week's challenge at CD Sunday is "On your bike!"

I'm really enjoying these challenges, they inspire me to use images and ideas I would normally never have thought of. And thank goodness for the La Pashe Best of 2012 CD which seems to have something to fit every occasion.

The CD has quite a few bike and motorbike images. This one caught my eye because of the lady reading the map - I'd just put a couple of out-of-date maps (OK, so old the M25 didn't appear on them!) for recycling so I rescued one to use as background paper.

I didn't have any road signs on CD so I downloaded some images to use as embellishments. I'd been planning to mount the image straight, but just as I was about to stick it  to the card I realised that if I angled it correctly the hill would look even steeper and I could make the poor man work even harder! Cruel of me, I know, but I like the result.
