Two Challenges in One

Evening Everyone,
Well I did think that we were pushing our luck with two days of beautiful sunshine, especially given that it is half term and the children are at home all day. So I wasn't at all surprised by the rain that was falling when I opened the door this morning. At least it cheered up as the day went on, let's hope that this isn't it for this year and nice weather!!
The card I am sharing tonight has been made following this month's sketch over at Woodware.
I have also combined it with the Black Tie colour combo challenge at Dynamic Duos, Turquoise and Basic Black. 

The stamp set is another of Jane Gill's new floral images, JGS298 Victorian Spray.
I have coloured it using Distress inks Black Soot and Broken China, and I also added a little sparkle with some Starlight Pen blended with a damp paintbrush.
The background papers are also available from Woodware, and I added some tiny gems and Faux Stitching.
I do love black combined with one other colour. In fact I used just that for one of the sample pages in the Woodware catalogue. (Click on the arrow till you get to 10-11)
I wonder what sort of weather tomorrow will bring. Better get some sleep before I find out.
