Masculine Monochrome card

Today, I'm baby sitting, and while Sophie is having a little snooze, I've finished my card I started yesterday at Jacqueline's house. I've made it for my friends sons birthday, and I'm going to enter it in two challenges.

The first is Dynamic Duos with these colours, plus the dessert option of a masculine theme.

The second is Make My Monday with a theme of

            FANCY FOLDS

This is it, it's a swing card
I made the base with White card, and matted it with a dark grey before another matt of White. Using Black I stamped the bicycle and sentiment on the centre panel, the birds on the small segments, and the floral borders on the sides. The last things were the two butterflies in grey and white.

Supplies :
Card = Naturals White, and dark grey card FMS
Stamps = Clarity Bicycle, Bliss, Vintage Vogue, and Verve
Inks = Black
Tools = Stamp-a-ma-jig, and Elegant Butterfly punch
Extras = Hand cut small Butterfly

Thank you to all of you who have sent me kind wishes for poor little Henry, I will pass them on to my Sister.

I'd better go as I can hear little footsteps upstairs, bye for now
