Audrey Tent Card

Hello everyone, hoping you've got a lovely warm, sunny day too as it's been beautiful here today.
I have a card to share with you in shape that's totally new to me but I'll be making more as it's quite easy and looks really different. It's called a tent card and I found the instructions for this on the Inspirational Tips and Techniques blog whilst searching for a different card shape for a class I taught yesterday. The tutorial is by the ever inventive Debbie Dolphin and the site is definitely worth a look if you haven't seen it before.

You'll find the instructions on the blog link above. I made the card from some lovely double sided 12 x 12 paper from a pack called Touch of Teal by Papermania. I used the largest Nestabilities Blossom die to cut the shape from the card front and then attached a cut out image of Audrey by B Line Designs to the flower shape. I added black paper trimmed using the Martha Stewart daisy border to the top and bottom of the card and a white daisy repeat trim for contrast. I finished off with a stamped Hero Arts sentiment LL662 Small Greetings cut out with the Nestabilities set and inked a little.
I'm entering the card in the following challenges whose themes it fits:
Creative Craft Challenges - Bloomin' Marvellous-flowers (see OSAAT list)
Papertake Weekly - Do Something Different (my card shape)
One Stitch At A Time - Flowers (backing paper, borders, trim, central shape)

Oh Fliss, I like very much.

The colours and of course Audrey, she exudes elegance.

Off to check out this link, I need to make something other than easel cards, I'm so hooked on them it's becoming an obsession.
