My first Tent card.....

I made this card tonight for my Nephew and his Wife who have just had a lovely baby Daughter. I saw this Tent card on another blog, sorry I can't remember where but if I find it I'll put a link to it. I thought it would be just perfect for this baby card and it is quite easy to make.

The image is Forever Friends, Papers are from my stash ( Bought in Tesco ages ago) I used Nesties Circles for the aperture and I have suspended the image with jump rings. The back of the card is stamped with Katie & co Sweet Baby stamp ( found it in a bargain box in the Paper shop 50p) I added the verse mounted on Circle Nesties, then I went a bit mad with the
