Let's go camping
After all the fun of house moves, we have gotten back into the habit of camping. It's fun to get a way for a few days (usually no cell service), and to just hike and read and enjoy ourselves. We have a small pop-up camper. (I'm not sure what they are called, or if they exist, in Europe, Here's a photo).
So, inspired by my camping and the Sweet Pea Mix It Up Challenge this month, I made this card. The camper image is from Scribbles Designs, with paper-piecing and colored pencils. The somewhat playful sentiment was stamped on a snippet and cut into a flag. Also used a border punch along the bottom of the green snippet panel. A bunch of coordinating ribbon flags finish it off.
This card is for these challenges:
Sweet Pea Mix It Up Challenge #35 -- photo inspiration
