Happy Camper'ish

Hello Readers, 

For today I will be playing along with Just Us Girls and Freshly Made Sketches. Here is my card for today, enjoy.

Camper image residing on the inner panel of the card.
The window is covered in acetate.
The white leaves represent camping in the woods.
There, it is a beautiful happy day.
Another perspective of the window
while some of the acetate is reflecting light. 
I gently closed the card to allow the shadows come through the window.
The color of the camper has the feeling of being bit aged.
But, like most campers it is still going on amazing adventures.

Left: I used glossy accents to adhere the white elements to the backside of the acetate leaving minimal glue marks.
Right: A picture of our well loved camper. I used 110lb. cardstock, distress markers, and an aqua pen to color the camper. I like the vintage effect it gave me.

Challenges Entered:
Just Us Girls: Word Week- #350
Freshly Made Sketches: FMS244


Why not so happy camper? I will first will let you see a photograph and you can tell me.

On our way home from our camping trip this tire decided to blow out. YIKES! Right around lunch time and the gas light was on.. Luckily, there was a small business with a dirt parking lot, shaded trees, and lots of room for my husband to work. While he was fixing the flat I got lunch together for everyone; spread out my emergency blanket and had a picnic under the shady pine. Crown, our dog, was tied to a tree so he could explore and not be in the car whining. My husband got done in record time! But storing the flat proved to be challenging. We looked and looked but nothing worked until.... DUH.... Lightbulb; strap it to the camper! So with full bellies, the new tire and old tire on the camper, we were off to get some well needed gas. 

Well that should do it for me.. Thank you once again for stopping by my corner of the internet. We will see you next time but until then take care and happy day.

All the best,

Oh, I enjoyed your camper story, Shawna - nothing like a flat tire to ruin your day, but with a picnic and a full tummy it's not that bad, hey!!!!

Have a great day, my friend!!!

This card is fabulous! Your camper look so cute and is colored so beautifully and surrounding it in white is so clever as it really makes it shine. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

Did you draw that camper freehand or is it a stamp/digi? Either way, it looks amazing and love how you've coloured it!
