I used today's color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary for a birthday card. It's my son's birthday this month and we plan on traveling this weekend to visit. Although his birthday is on the 28th he is going away with a group of friends to Mount Katahdin that weekend. Once a year they go hiking to the top of this mountain which takes almost the whole day to complete. This year they decided to go camping there for Memorial weekend so I thought this card would be perfect for his birthday:

Instead of using a neutral I added in the Old Olive to give the illusion of grass in the background. I used Stampin' Up!'s "The Great Outdoors" stamp set. How appropriate! I stamped all the images in Jet Black StazOn Ink and colored them all using my ink pads and a Blender Pen:

I created a little scenery by adding the tents in the background followed by a chair sitting by the campfire. The 3 pictures below are of each flap:

The sentiment is from the "Label Love" stamp set and cut out with the coordinating Artisan Label Punch. The images in this stamp set are stinkin' adorable:

I know he will love this card and probably set it up in his man room!
