Swing Top Card with Stripes

I found this image and decided to make a birthday card for my children to give to Pa. He loves old cars. Papers used are a mixture of Websters, Prima and Kaiser. Now I'm going to keep this short as the internet connection is playing up and I better be quick.

Coloured with copic markers, border punch is from EK Success. The off cuts I have used to help border the image. Waste not want not!

The card is an open swing top card which is the challenge over at Project Tuesday. Another first for me and quite a clever idea for something different.

I've also used stripes and some of the colour theme for the Shabby Tea Room challenge this week. "Cottage Comfort" is the theme, so I've tried to give this card a warm vintage feel. Head on over to see their inspiring image.
