For my card I have used two digi images, both from Toucan Scraps. I had never made a tent card and think they look really effective if you combine the right elements together. I absolutely adore lighthouses and being at the sea and really wanted to have a go at combining both the Lighthouse and Peaceful Sea images using this type of card. Both images are coloured with Promarkers.

I didn't follow any instructions but had a reasonable idea of how it would work and made it up as I went along. I used an A4 sheet of stardream card as my base and scored the lines for the base. I then scored a line in the middle of the size that was left. I used a Nestie label frame to cut out a window in the front of the card. The image is attached to the inside of the back panel with foam squares. I added some blue glitter glue around the edge for a bit of twinkle. The lighthouse has been added to the outside of the card and I use some Glossy Accents on the light at the top.

I am really please with how this has turned out. I truly love being so inspired when I initially see the digi design but when it actually comes out the way you planned it in your head it amazes me every time!!
Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size - A5 Tent Card
Images - Lighthouse & Peaceful Seas by Toucan Scraps
Tools - 3D Foam, Promarkers, Nestabilities Die
Embellishments - Glitter glue, Glossy Accents
Techniques - die cut, shaped card

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
