My first tent card -

and honestly it's taken me ALL Day!!!

I went to the Post Office to send some goodies to some people (they know who they are!!! So watch out for them), I came back did some blog hopping & came across Vicky's Blog & saw her AMAZING card, I knew I wanted to make something similar so here is my attempt...

Please be honest what do you think???
I don't know if I'll attempt anymore of these - I don't have the time lol!!!

Card stock from paper mill, paper K&Co Magnolia Tilda, Background & Swing all colored with pro makers, x-cut flower punch, dovecraft greeting stamps, plain & scalloped circle & label 1 nesties.

I normally add what markers I've used but I can't remember as I colored these at about 12.30 lol!!!! Hope you're all well & having fun, I'm gutted I went to buy New Moon today & it was £14 in HMV & WH Smiths - so I'm waiting until I go to work tomorro only £8 in Asda :D

Awesome and beautiful use of your DP! It's certainly worth all the time and effort you put into it! The swing was an ingenious idea. Wonderful work....

I think it's great that you said, "please be honest"... sometimes it can feel that people are just trying to be nice! So - I'm gonna be honest. I REALLY like this card. I like the dp, the branch, swing, and Tilda (of course). I've never made this type of card, but I can appreciate all the time and effort you put into it. When you've been staring at it for a long time, you might begin to have second thoughts. I say, 'do another one' : ) Your work is GOOD! I wanna see more!
Love and hugs ~ Lori
