Special Days

Good evening everyone, sorry I've been AWOL for a while but it was my youngest son's birthday at the weekend, he was thirteen.

This is a Tent Card I've made for the Willow Sketchie Challenge.  This week there is an added recipe included with the sketch - Something Red, Something Shiny/Sparkly.   I've used another of the Winnie Owl images from my Double Sprinkles of Kraft CD by Polka Doodles and Willow Designs.

I apologise for the shadows, it's rather dreary here this evening.  This is the first Tent Card that I have made and I have learnt quite a lot from the experience.  I used some more of my Core'dinations WhiteWash Card stock, I just love the effect you get when you sand this card.

Sorry for the overload of photographs but I couldn't figure out how best to show this type of card especially with the lack of light.

I have added red gem stones to the die cut butterfly embellishments and glitter to the butterfly in Winnies hair to meet the something shiny/sparkly recipe criteria.

I have also decorated the back of the card and added a die cut circle to give somewhere to write a sentiment.

Image:  Double Sprinkles of Kraft
Papers:  docrafts - the little cake shoppe
Card stock:  Core'dinations - WhiteWash 
Tools:  Spellbinders - Standard Circles and Scalloped Circles, Die-namics Butterflies
Embellishments:  ribbon, gems and glitter from stash
Sentiment:  Polka Doodles

Thank you for looking, I hope you have a good week.
