A Camping Birthday card

I am so happy that this came together and I have my Gypsy to thank for making it all work!   My grandson is having a campout birthday party so it was fun to browse - I used Nate's ABC's and various grassy pieces I found on carts I have.  It measures 8"x7" and may be a little larger than I like, but I wanted to make the pieces easier to cut and assemble.  Did you notice it's a side-step card?  I added the background piece of starred paper which changed the back section a little but I think it turned out ok. The tent is actually attached by a hinge to the starred paper - - and the birthday wishes are on the back!

Happy 4th of July !!! (almost)  and God Bless America!!!!

Boy! it's been a little while since I've posted - not because I haven't crafted, but I was in a "make a card and give it away" mode - so no pictures !

oops!!! looks like I rotated too far!LOL!!!

Same here...'sorry!!
I was lucky enough to be able to spend a full afternoon in my craft room( re-arranged and added a sofa/bed) and just created some simple cards for the 4th.  What a lot of great papers out there and I've got to be careful that I don't get caught in just using the paper with no crafting to it!! Rosettes seem to be my creativity on these cards, with a little stamping and heat embossing. and am kicking myself for not purchasing the star embossing folder when they were available - all sold out around here... oh well, there's always the next round of 40% off coupons coming up!!LOL!!
