Tee Pee Thanksgiving

Hi Everyone!

I have a fun new card style to show you, today! This is my first attempt at making a Tee Pee card, and I had such a blast! I admit though, I didn't do a lot as far as decorating, since this card is for a male friend for Thanksgiving - Didn't want too much foo foo fluff on it, ya know?

I used the following photo from Just Inspirational Challenges as the Color Inspiration for today's card:

The card has three sides and each side is decorated with a different patterned paper and a different image. Two sides have the striped ribbon and one has the leaf patterned ribbon, all from my stash. The images are all by Dustin Pikeand are colored with Promarkers. I added adhesive blingy discs to the ribbon on each side for some extra decoration. I could have went wild with the decorating on this, but I had to keep reminding myself that its a male card so its best to keep it simple! (Can't wait to make a girly one!) I ran out of the orangish colored blingy discs since I went kind of crazy with them, so I had to alternate with green on one side. (I never thought there could be too much bling, but I might have went overboard with this card!!!) The images are punched with circle punches. The card is held together on the right side panel with Ultra Think Hook and Loop Tabs (Very thin, flat, velcro) by Tombow, from their Craft Collection. (If you haven't tried this, oh my goodness, they are so awesome! Very thin and hard to detect on your cards! Go Tombow!)

Here is a pic of the card unfolded. You can see all sides except the side with the tabs, that tucks under the left side, to keep the card closed and help it stand up.

It would make a great centerpiece for the holiday table, too!

I am entering this Tee Pee card in the following challenges:
