Simon Says Stamps challenge DT

Morning! It is time for another challenge at Simon Says Stamp, and this week we would like to see tent cards and charms!!! If you haven't visited Simon Says Stamp's charms section you really must, so many gorgeous charms in one place! They have some gorgeous sets!! I decided to try something a little different with my tent card and created three apertures for hanging things instead of the usual one. This way I could create my theme of wishing on a star using three star charms and this gorgeous Tilda from the fairytale collection. I'm entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp challenge over on Paper Craft Planet - they want to see bling and there's a fantastic blingy prize - pop over and check it out!

I ave coloured Tilda with distress inks and added stickles to her fairy dust.

I crumpled a Tim Holtz ticket and distressed the edges with walnut stain distress ink. The lace is from my stash.

I used part of a pearl and crystal swirl from Prima in the corner.

As you cannot write inside a tent card I decided to decorate the back with matching papers and created a pocket and tag for a message.

Hope you can join us this week - tent cards are brilliant fun to make and look so effective! Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's stunning creations! Thanks for looking! x
