Old Wheelbarrow

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring this week's Sugar Creek Hollow  challenge with the theme 'wheels' (must be vintage or shabby chic)'!   I find both categories,vintage and shabby chic very hard to do and I invariably  struggle to come up with a design so I tend to shy away from doing them. Now having said that  I love cards that reflect these categories  and admire those that do them well. Can't wait to see what everyone come up with.   I do hope you take a look and decide to participate.  I used two pre-coloured images from several Doodle Pantry stamp sets and one outline stamp. These three were digitally merged to create one scene:
