The Tuesday Party is hopping!

This week Party Time Tuesday is hosting a sketch challenge! I love sketches and we are so happy to have Stacy as our Sketch Designer! Look at the amazing sketch she made for us:
If that is not enough to entice you to play along, you might also want to know that our sponsor this week is Circle B Enterprises Scrapbooking & More Store! They have such an amazing selection of stickers and embellishments, go ahead and check them out! The Party Planners will be showcasing some of their products in the coming months, so stay tuned...

I loved Stacy' sketch, it was so inspiring! I decided to make a tent card (my first):
Maya Road Medallion Flowers and Jenni Bowlin Butterfly Banner Stickers from the Mosh Posh July'10 kit. My Mind's Eye - Lounging Around - and American Crafts - Tree House -  papers from the Country Home July'10 kit I won at Color me Miki. Core'dinations - Whitewash - cardstock, SRM sticker sentiment and ribbon from my stash.

Challenges entered:
Catch the Bug - Different Fold
Mimi Doodles - Challenge #20 Flower Card
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Challenge 9
DYSU - challenge #6 ribbons

I started out following this tent card tutorial, but decided to use a 12" x 4.5" card base and score at 4.5", 9", 10", 11" - as you can see from the picture below:
I cut the window with a Coluzzle template and lined it with a scrap of cardstock to give it more support. I had to trim the length of the closing flap so it would not show through the window. I twirled the paper strips with a quilling tool that came with Twirled Paper: Make Almost Anything With Simple Paper Strips (Klutz). Here is another view from the side:

I hope you get a chance to join the Party this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
