Just Magnolia Challenge - A Tent Card!

Yay - it's Friday! I hope you're all looking forward to a great weekend - we have fantastic temperatures coming our way (+11) so can't wait to get out & about!

The special monthly challenge over at Just Magnolia is a fab tutorial by Dena showing how to make a tent card! Oh, this was fun and so super easy! I chose to use this Tilda as she's perfect for dangling in this type of card. I coloured with my copics and cut her out. Papers are from the BG Porcelain pad - I'd forgotten how pretty these papers are! My embellishments are these funky spring branches that I found in the Dollar Store! I find a lot there don't I??!!!! LOL The little coloured balls are polestyrene and are kinda cool. I added a couple of white cherry blossoms and some pearl spray. I love the Spring branch effect it gives.

Edited to add this new picture! I found this cute sentiment stamp at Michaels today and thought it would be the perfect fit on this card!

Here's a side view of the card to how the dimension and how easily it goes together. I will also submit this card into the Simon says Stamp challenge this week which is a Mother's Day/Girly card as I've made this card to send back to Jersey for my mum.

Well, thanks for stopping by today - I hope you were able to be inspired! I will definitely be making this style of card again - go try it out - the tutorial is right here! Thanks for your wonderful comments - every single one of them is truly appreciated! Have a fabulous day everyone!
