Bike riding in the moonlight

Can you tell what the background of this girl is??  I see a lot of artists using security envelopes in their collage work so I thought it would be fun to use it as a background for a girl doodle. 
The best part of all is when I was done and folded up the envelope - look what I found!!
It was a total surprise to see her peeking out the window - I couldn't have done that on purpose if I tried!!  Made me so happy that I worked on finding a book quote that would work for the front and inside of the envelope.

Beautiful! I used one envelope, not security I think, as a collage. When I had water on my brush and touched the envelope it became a looovely color, sort of teal. I was surprised!
