Tent card

A tent card was the challenge over at Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge 20 this week, first of all I had to learn what a tent card was and then dream up what I was going to do.  Lucky for me the challenge at Simon Says Stamp is also a tent card with charms (sun).  I used many images from Prairie Fairy Designs to create this card, for details see the list below.  I drew an ark, then sponged it and added detail.  The waves are double in depth as I added a layer to the folded crease at the bottom of the card.  I used the Swirly border die cut and glued it to blue cardstock and then trimmed it to look like waves.  I turned my Dress Up Roo image into Noah this time around and make sure not to miss out on the dove eyelet flying above.  Hope you all enjoy my first attempt at a tent card, I didn't have any jump rings so used sewing thread instead.  The sentiment is computer generated.


Up close so you can see the depth, sorry it is a little fuzzy on the left.


I laid the card down for this view so that you could indeed see that I added a charm, I thought it made an interesting sun.
