Teddy Bo Tuesday Teepee

Last week was all about the cowboys and girls (well cowbears actually LOL! ) and so far this week it's all about the indians (sort of  lol!) as I have made another Teepee card, I'm just loving this shape at the moment.

 I have used one of this weeks new images Ice Skating Bea, isn't she just adorable! coloured in Photoshop as usual. I have also used the Harlequin Interactive Book-a-Easel kit from the Clipart Fairy for the backing papers and frame, (wait I hear all you Clipart Fairy Fans shouting, that looks nothing like a book-a-easel!) No it doesn't, but if you look closely, you will notice that the mat around Bea is a page from the book-a-easel, I have re-sized it, turned it around and used it as a frame, the harlequin paper is one of the background papers from the kit. The snowflakes are Marianne Creatables dies, and along with the sentiment dangle from the top of the card on strips of acetate. Lashings of glamour dust finish it off.

*** Edited to add, my template for the Teepee Card, can be found here***
