A sketch and some inspiration by tanjaak

 Hello and good evening! I'm here with not really a tutorial but more of a challenge... I made a simple sketch for you to use as a base for your crafting projects. I also wanted to just show you four cards I made following this skecth. If you have ever heard of a "tent topper" card then I quess this is a sketch for one. Hope you like it.
Now here below are some of the materials I used for my cards. I thought I should also show you a neet trick on how to "pimp" up your embellishments...and in this case how to decorate the swirls. So I have used two Whiff of Joy dies, Magical tag and Romantic Swirls... and the gorgeous brads are also from WoJ. So what you need is lots of cardstock and design papers, adhesive, ink, your stamps and embellishments.

I used four different images, all from WoJ's January release. I have coloured Nora, Ben, Henry and little Tweetheart with Promarkers and added some distress ink to the background.

And now I have cut the Romantic Swirls#2 four times out of kraft cardstock. They are gorgeous as such but I thought I should decorate them a bit and stamped a swirl on top of them and added some white gel pen to add depth.

Now I guess all that's left is to show you some inspirational? LOL pictures of my creations.

Thanks for looking and hope I inspired you to do some crafting LOL!
