Day at the Races

Hi again, well it's nearly the end of March and I can't believe how fast the year is going already. Tomorrow will be our eldest son's birthday and I haven't even thought about what to give him as a present. I took hubby to the doctor's today and had the growth on his head chopped out. He is now sporting 4 stitches to add to his pain of broken ribs. He says it's not hurting at the moment so hopefully it will be okay.
I had craft this morning and played around with some prototypes for my daughter's wedding invitations. She had something in mind and I tried to duplicate it with just what I had here in my stash. The colours weren't what she wanted but at least she can see it can be achieved if that is what she chooses.
Well it is late as usual here, those of you who visit regularly will know that I am a bit of a night owl!!! I had better get on and share the card I made.
I decided to have a go at making a Dutch fold Card.
I have used white cardstock to make the cardbase and the a layer of DP from a mini stack by cre8tiv in a black and white pattern. The image is from a Kanban set called "Day at the Races" it's a different set of the Cavendish Ladies that I have shared on earlier posts. I stamped it in Basic Black ink onto a white circle diecut and then layered it onto a black scalloped diecut and adhered to the top folded part of the card. I also added some white pearls to the left handtop and right hand bottom corners. The inside has some more of the DP on the base and some layers of black card. The sentiment is from Penny Black and I stamped it onto a piece of white card stock and punched the edges with a border punch.
I enjoyed making this one.
I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
Chocolate, Coffe & Cards Challenges - Challenge 9 ~ Fancy Folds. The bottom two panel fold in like a gate fold and the top folds down.
Craft Your Passion Challenges - Challenge 103 - MONOCHROMATIC -We want to see shades of one color or black and white.
The Cheerful Stamp Pad - Challenge #39 - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - #82 - Anything Goes

Hope you enjoy my card today and thanks again for popping in. I couldn't crop the scan of the inside as I wanted to show the whole thing.
Take Care,
