Kool Tent card

Last week I didn't get a chance to make a tent card and enter the Just Magnolia challenge, so I was left with the wish to try and create one. And then I found this cool image from Pollycraft on Friday, and so wanted to use it! [Cards for teenagers are hard to create, in my experience - after male cards, of course; teens do not want to be seen as kids, they are not adults either; have their own style and fashion, they are independent... I was delighted to come across this digital image of a teen girl, looking cool yet sweet and feminine. It is a gorgeous stamp - thanks Paula!]
So today I decided to leave other challanges aside and concentrate on these two items in my To Do list. In the end I incorporated both in one card. Hope you like it. Rather than having the image "hanging" in the tent, I opted to use acetate. The sentiment stamps are from G Studio, the image was a freebie from Pollycraft from last week; coloured with Letraset Promarkers; circle Nestabilities, heart punch, scalloped circle punch, badge from a local accessories shop; not sure about the paper :-).

PS. By the way, Tales from Pollycraft are having a DT call: As a DT member we would like you to create samples for the shop gallery, and fortnightly for the challenge (we are having 2 teams doing alternate weeks for the challenge). Sounds good!!
