A Purple Tent Card!

Hello y'all! Happy Monday! I have a card to share that I made for my aunt last week. Her birthday is next week but my grandma had a surprise birthday party for her last Saturday. She turned the big 50! She is NOT happy about it. She's a big kid herself and has been for as long as I can remember. She literally taught me how to stomp my foot! I was orginally going to get one of Mo's Fairy images and while looking through her fabulous store I found these 'throwing a fit' images and I HAD to get them. I made up the sentiments myself. I love this card!!!

There's a new challenge over at Wild Orchid Crafts. Our theme for the next 2 weeks is to make a tent card. I hope you will join us. Wild Orchid Crafts has some amazing new products. You HAVE to check them out. I absolutely LOVE this store!! I hope you will join us in our tent card challenge. Don't forget to visit my super talented design team buddies!

The colouring is perfect and the flowers are so delicate. Simply perfect for a 50 year old. I have to make something like this when my brother in law turning 40!
