The Crafty Pad - Gatefold card

Hello here is my card for The crafty pad challenge .
This week we would like you to make a Gatefold card - any embellis can be added that you wish to use. :)
The challenge will be open to everyone. If you do not use a Crafty Pad stamp
your name will go in the draw once - BUT anyone who uses a Crafty Pad stamp will get their name in twice. :)
The prize will be any single Crafty Pad stamp of your choice. :) :)
We would also like to know what is your favourite Crafty Pad stamp?
I made the gatefold card and then I used my punch to make a stencil and used the twinkling H20's to make the black flowers. I then punched some flowers and grass from white card and newspaper. I then added gems to some of them. I stamped my favourite stamp Faith and embossed her. I paperpieced her hat and jacket with some newspaper. I added a harsh black background of china black H20's and then I added a flower embellishment in the corner. Inside the card I added some black card and a happy birthday sentiment.
I am having a horrible day as the sky people are being a mare and will not send someone to sort out their mess today. I am fuming!!! They ballsed it up and will not come and sort it. That is the polite way of saying what I want to say. They connected my neighbours box to our dish. I am awaiting a manager to call me to come and sort it.

Stunning card - love the monotone look - it's great Pascale

Thanks for joining us this week


Oh dear I have had so much hassle over the months with Sky - they are terrible to deal with - the money they charge too and the after service is a disgrace - Hope they can do you a better service ...
