Unstampabelles Challenge #2 - Wheels

What a wonderful turn out for our first ever challenge.  We had 47 amazing entries.  It is so terrific to see what people can do with paper.  

Firstly I have to tell you of our couple of changes to our challenges.  There were a few entries that made us realise that we had to fine tune the 'No Stamping' rule.  So it now reads as follows:

No Stamps! This means no rubber stamps, no digital stamps, clipart or line art which includes pre-coloured versions.  This also includes sentiment stamps.  
Due to graphic technology any entry with a graphic image will be subject to the Design Teams discretion and we will contact you if feel the entry does not meet the ethos of our challenge blog.

This is not meant to take the fun out of the challenge at all.

However, we also have some fun news.  

From now on we will be adding a Technique Theme to each challenge.   This is not a requirement for an entry but if you can give us a creation with the Challenge theme and the Technique theme you will be entitled to a bonus entry.  The Challenge theme must always be part of your creations.

Finally we have made it to Challenge #2 it is all about WHEELS.
The bonus Technique Theme is Spirelli, this is not a requirement but if you can add this to our main theme WHEELS you will get a bonus entry.

Wow...thats a lot of I can finally tell you all about my card.

I started with a white base card then added a layer of this lovely vellum.  I attached the vellum with a white brad in each corner.  I handcut (or fussy cut) the wheelbarrow then added these lovely flowers.  The flowers are made up of paper flowers which I have coloured with my Copic pens, Holographic Flowers and brads.  I punched out some leaves from a magazine page.  The wheel is first ever try and I quite enjoyed it.  I used my Spellbinder scalloped edged circle die and purple metallic thread.  Finished the card with the lovely white 'Thank You' sticker.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
