BSS Monday Idea - TEEPEE Card

Before we get started, just want to say what a beautiful bride Jessica was, and
if you haven't seen the pictures, see the post below. And her sister, Katelyn was looking especially
beautiful too! Congrats, Sharon and Mark.
OK, a little background on this idea.
A woman named Kitty, from Independence, Mo. contacted me by email a couple of years
ago when she started to read this blog and follow my Monday ideas. She has relatives
in Auburn, New York and visits once a year in the summer and makes it a point to stop in
at Buffalo Stamps and Stuff on her way home.
Well, Kitty is responsible for the Monday idea this week, a TeePee card.
She has even provided a link for a tutorial on the card. Easy to put together
and fun to decorate.
Paper is Graphic 45 Playtime's Past Collection. Image is Penny Black - Roses on the Run (3927H)
Butterflies are the punched out area of an EK Success border punch.
Colored with Copic Markers.
White die cut is Nellie Snellen (MFD 011)
Green die circle is Spellbinders Classic Circles

Side two of the TeePee card, punched scalloped circle with Marvey Punch
Sentiment stamp is Jillian Vance Design (Celebrate Men 2011-099)
Sentiment on side three is also from this set.
Used the roses from the main image at the bottom of the scalloped circle.
Red lace border is a Martha Stewart punch.
Card stands up for displaying. I used a Velcro button on the back panel
to hold it together for standing. Undo the Velcro button and it folds for
Thanks so much Kitty for sharing this tutorial with me and for your
always kind words about the Monday ideas. So glad you check in each Monday to
see what's up here in Buffalo. As a side note, Kitty isn't making the trip to New York
this year as she is awaiting the birth of her first Grandchildren, twins, a boy and a girl.
That will do it for this week.
Hope you have time to try this unique card.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Monday.  Until later.........
