The Challenge #94 Let the adventure begin!

               Thanks for joining me today as I share this week's design for The Challenge! It is a fun "glamping" style party inspiration photo. While I took a very literal approach, the possibilities are endless with all of the little details in the photo. I considered doing a bubblegum machine, cupcakes, and more, but when you have the Happy Camper stamp set and coordinating dies as well as the Mountain Scene die, you gotta go with it! I was actually very happy to pull these supplies out, since I haven't used them yet this year.                       
You can read all about the challenge and the rules HERE as well as see what this week's guest designer created (it's darling)! You can see what the rest of the team created as well.

Since the theme in the photo seemed to be a birthday party, I decided to create a fun birthday card as well. Of course, the colors were a great inspiration as well! I decided to bring in some of the wood grain by using the Woodgrain Impression Plate. I really like this plate because it has a horizontal pattern on one side and the vertical image on the other so it is a two-for-one! I chose to created a vertical card for today' design. Once that was done, I die cut a circle using a nestabilities die, but saving the inside portion that you will see later on in the post. 

Once the circle was cut, it was time to create the scene. I sponged some Broken China Distress Oxide Ink onto the top portion of a white circle that was nestled down into the negative space that the circle die cut created. I spritzed it with a little bit of water to get it to oxidize just a bit. After that was done, I simply die cut and stamped all of the rest of the pieces to create the scene.
The sentiment strip was stamped using one of the coordinating sentiments. I added another strip of pink paper for some added interest as well as a retro vibe. A trio of Sparkling Clear Sequins finishes it off. The top of the card ended up feeling empty to me. I stared at it a while and just couldn't decide what to do. My sister was over and she suggested a banner like the one on the camper or something! Light bulb moment! I remembered that I had the right size banner die from the Globe Greetings die set from Concord and 9th! I die cut them from the same cardstock as the tiny ones on the camper and then brushed them with my Wink of Stella Brush to add some of those "glamping" touches! They were the perfect addition thanks to my sister! LOL!

I mentioned earlier that I was creating this as a birthday card so I decided to use that left over woodgrain circle to use as an anchor for my sentiment. I also used some of the other details that the front uses as you can see. The sentiment is from the Stylish Sentiments: Birthday set which is always my go-to birthday set. I hope you find some inspiration and join us this week! Thanks for fluttering by!
