Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #528-Theme Challenge

 It is time for a NEW Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!!! The theme for this time around is CAMPING!!

The photo below was the inspiration for this very rustic looking card. 

I chose to use an embossed wood background as the base of this card. I then added digital images from our sponsor, Pixel Paper Prints. She generously gifted us the "Camper Boys" digital stamps. Aren't they fun?

I knew in my head the basic design I wanted to do with this card. I wanted to use Distress ink to "dirty" it up. Instead of coloring all the images, I decided to color only one. I chose the lantern because this was one of my favorite images in the whole set. I used Tombow water based markers to color it in. 

The sentiment was created by using my computer. It was a tad smaller than I wanted so I used some kraft cardstock as a frame.

I will be honest, making this card was really out of my comfort zone. I am NOT a camper at all and really have no one to send this card to. However, it was fun to think outside the box to create.

That is all from me today. Please hop on over to Cupcake Inspirations Challenge and play with us this week! There are prizes being awarded. See the post for details!!!

Fantastic design, Nora. So fresh, fun, and timelessly wonderful. (I completely agree with that sentiment, BTW, and make a point to have at least one or two internet-less days per week as a general rule.)
