Prairie Fairy DT card for FFF!

It's FRIDAY again, WOO HOO! Long weekend here in these parts! 3 Day wknd! YAY!!
Not that it matters much being on maternity leave, however, I am happy for the school MONDAY!

Over at Fairy Fun Fridays the challenge is a tent card. I must admit I was a bit confused when I first saw this challenge as I have never done a tent card before. It was really fun & really easy and I used this tutorial (hope people don't mind me advertising it)

My image is by the Prairie Fairy & is a set of three called 'Spaceships' which are available in her store here.

I did not do the traditional suspension tent card, rather I glue dotted by spaceships 'legs' (if you will) to the green circle, thereby suspending it sideways?! Make sense.

& yup there are those left over necklace trinkets of my daughters, attached with crystal effects to my spaceship!
 I also have my card held together by a couple of paperclips (one on top behind the fold & one behind the sentiment), in case one would want to write something in the card!

AND there's that perfectly shaped bow done by my newly aquired Bow Easy Tool purchased at Really Reasonable Ribbons ! I LOVE MY BOW EASY.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see you at FFF this week!!!

Challenges for my card:
All Sorts- birthday
Our Creative Corner-Masculine Birthday
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp- One for the boys
Stamp Something- 2 of something (I have 2 punched sentiments)
The Crafty Pad- tear it up
Creative Cottage- one for the boys
C.R.A.F.T.- birthday/celebrate

It's perfect! Will make a great boys birthday card! When Drake picked the other ship I told him you used one too. Why didn't you tell me he said. But they are different I told him. So I hid this paper pack or he would have used it for sure...lmao!

Great card Corry. I really like the eyelets and how you suspended your image. Thanks so much for the tutorial, as I didn't know what a tent card was either.
