Another GDT Card!

Here I am for the second time on a Wednesday! lol

Some of you may have got a sneaky peek at this post as Mr Blogger was misbehaving last night & published instead of scheduling like I asked him too!

I was selected as a featured artist at Penny's Paper crafty Challenges
a while back with my Roshell Ducky & Eggward, Just Because I Can card!
As a result of this I was invited to be a GDT for the Challenge this week which is "Birthdays"
Here's the card I made!

It's a Tepee card!
I used a pearl cardstock for the basic teepee shape.
I then layered the panels using DPs which have been in my stash for ever. 
They are from Do Crafts
As Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge is being sponsored by Some Odd Girl,
 I used the Flower Kaylee
one of their images to work with!
I coloured her with promarkers.

Next, I trimmed the image, cutting the sides at a slight angle!
I then mounted her onto a piece of coloured cardstock.

The Happy Birthday sentiment ticket is from The Crafty Pad Designs.

I punched a hole at the side to allow the panels to be tied together, 
thus making it more stable & able to stand up.

I added 3 lots of two Prima Flowers, layered & with brads for centres, two of flourishes &
A charm tied on with a bow.

Here's the card from the side just so you get the full idea!
Thanks for stopping by!
 I hope you like it!
