Tent Card vs. Tent Topper Card

The challenge at Tuesday Throwdown this week is to make a Tent Topper Card.  I hope all of you have made one and entered the challenge.  If not, what are you waiting for?  

Here is an example of a Tent Topper Card.

 It's basically a top fold card with something sticking out over the fold.
The card base is 41/4" square and the scalloped oval extends 1 1/4" above the fold.
It will fit in a normal A2 size envelope. How easy is that?
So why haven't you made one for Tuesday Throwdown's current challenge?
Last week I was teasing Tuesday Throwdown's Team A because the theme was Anything Goes and there were so many entries, which meant they had so many comments to leave.  This week is Team B's turn (I'm on team B.) and so far I haven't had to leave one comment.   Of course, if there aren't many submissions the chances of your winning the free digis from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps are so much greater.  I'd love to see one of my Followers win.

The card above uses a digi image, Autumn's Kite, from Sweet n Sassy stamps and From the Heart's digi sentiment from the Hamlet Pigwit Think Spring set. 
If I could, I would enter this into Tuesday Throwdown's Current Challenge - Tent Topper Card.
But I can't because I'm on the DT. 
So I am entering it into these challenges:
Brown Sugar Challenge #84 - Make it Sparkle I used glitter paper and a gem over the "i".
Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge #166 - Spots and Stripes
The Stamping Boutique Challenge #7 - Make Your Sentiment POP
Crafting For All Seasons Challenge #72 - Spring into Spring

While working on my DT post for Tuesday Throwdown, I came across a tutorial for a Tent Card.  This is different from the Tent Topper and I had never made one.  Well, I have now......

 The little bird image is by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps.  The sentiment is a CTMH stamp.
Die cuts  are  beaded circles  by Spellbinders. 
I'll be entering this in the following challenges:
Crafting for the Craic March Challenge - Something with Green
Craftitude Challenge #60 - Anything Goes or Add Green
Fussy and Fancy Challenge #109 - Birthdays
JellyPark Challenge - Things with Wings
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #184 - Shaped Card
DRS Challenge #112 - For the Birds
Crafty Creations Challenge #258 - Happy Birthday
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #167 - Anything but Square

Now remember....  
Ends 3/10
