Penny Black spring meets Basic Grey sketch!

Morning all I have had a great morning watched the Grand Prix ( Go Team Brawn!!!) in bed, whilst Jimmy ( he hates motor racing I have been brought up on it, my dad met Graham Hill years ago.) got the kids sorted. Just had a coffee and breakfast and made a card! What more could a knackered mum of four want..... Well a huge house in the country, lots of dosh, babysitters, diamonds the list is endless ( no I am happy with my lot and my health, honest).

I have met the criteria ( I hope) for two challenges. The first challenge is Penny black which is to make a spring card. I combined three stamp companies in the main image, whiff of joy (girl/butterfly), High hopes (gate) and the flowers on the gate and on the bottom of the card are from a penny black stamp. I used the sketch from the basic grey challenge . Oops just looked at the sketch again, I missed out the diamond have already posted it on the challenge blog, sorry! . I used two scoops paper as my bottom layer you can just about see it. The top paper is K&co. The tag is a sticker free in a magazine layered onto card. I wasn't too sure as I was making it but I am actually quite chuffed with the result. I am delighted as it is sunny so Jimmy can take the kids to the park whilst I get crafting. He He!!

This shows you the dimension.

Hope you are not bored of my gates that open. Kinetic cards are all the rage apparently and I am a kinetic learner so I have lots of fun doing these. Hugs Pascale and thank you for taking the time to look.
