A fairy in your teacup!!!

Did you find a fairy in your teacup this morning???  I must admit I didn't but maybe that is because I only drink out of large mugs filled to the brim with coffee :)

I haven't made a tent card before so thought I would give one a go.  Must admit I am in two minds as to if I like the shape or not.  it lends itself beautifully to standing up and showing off the front decoration but I don't like having to write a personal message on the back of the card.  Think I will have to dwell on this for a while.

  • tent card template
  • my own backing paper
  • die cut topper lacy mount cut on my Black Cat and coloured to match the background paper with ProMarkers and the spray gun attachment
  • digi topper using image 'tea cup fairy' by Mo Manning and available from Mo's Digital Pencil - a super cute image don't you agree :)
  • Lace I bought downtown (in Khobar, Saudi Arabia) last week with this card in mind
  • Thin ribbon which I have had for a while which I wove through the lacy circle topper, used along the bottom of the card and also for the bow.  The bow has a couple of pearl beads on the ends just to give some weight as the ribbon is really light and flimsy
  • Saying, just something I made up - corny I agree hahahahahaha
  • On the back of the card I used the same paper background paper and four pearls, one in each corner, just to make the writing area a little more appealing.  Should have taken a photo but I forgot.  Sorry.
