Prairie Fairy Week 20 Tent Card Challenge: I don't have a problem with coffee...

Welcome to another fairy-fabulous challenge with Fairy Fun Fridays! This week the challenge is to create a tent style card. Be sure to check out the DT creations for variety of styles/ways to make your own tent card if you haven't before!

I used one of my all-time fave images called "the urge". I call her Gertie :) I had a slight technical issue with my card...I had the dp mounted on white card stock as is the both pieces and the base, but running it thru my cuttlebug twice to get the opening cut it got all bent up so I just trimmed it down.. I figure the DP was too cute to have to NOT use it and it fit everything I had planned, so I made that choice heh. So, word of advice, don't try to cram a full 6x6 piece of cardstock with dsp thru the cuttlebug more than once .... for some reason I had a harder time getting the nestie to cut thru both the dsp and cardstock layer so had to put it thru twice after flipping it. all worked out.

Image: Prairie Fairy Digital Designs "The Urge"
Colored with copics
Paper: DCWV Nana's kitchen
Cardstock base in hiding- neenah textured white
SU pretty in pink ribbon (yay for wishrak)
Blue clippies from my stash
Sentiment- typed on computer
Atttached Gertie by a piece of chain from dollarama necklace and misc brads

Here is a tutorial on tent cards.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you will join us in this challenge!
