Happy Camper Anniversary

My niece and her family love to camp. 
They spend several weeks each summer in their trailer 
at provincial parks - swimming, campfires and s'mores are 
their favourites. I used Petite Places: Happy Camper 
to make an anniversary card for them, 
knowing that it is very close to their hearts!!
I love using a variety of stamps and dies to embellish 
each of the little boxes from the Comic Strip Cover Plate. 
This time, I cut one piece of card stock from Kraft 
to make the outline frame and a second piece 
in order to get the variety of panels.

On the top box, I cut away one of the 
vertical frame lines so that I could have a full width 
for the sentiment (Close To My Heart: Good Times).  
This was stamped with Dark Chocolate ink 
directly onto the Aqua Mist panel. 
I stamped it a second time onto white card stock with 
Pure Poppy ink, and trimmed the small Good Times panel. 
I then glued that onto top of the original stamped line. 
A yellow copic marker was used to fill in the stars.
The central panel was created using:
* a roadway - narrow grey cardstock with white dash lines;
* two die cut trees from Scene It: Mountain View; 
* stamped birds from Ahoy! 
* Fresh Snow ink sponged along the top to make clouds
* Sun - die cut from Harvest Gold card stock with a 
    medallion die (Ad Sense) and stamped with a small sunburst 
    from Monthly Moments: June.  A yellow adhesive dot was 
    added to the center before popping it up with foam dots.
* Trailer, banner and car - Happy Camper stamps and dies.

The bottom right panel uses stamps and dies from 
Petitie Places: Happy Camper and Scene It: Mountain  View.
The bottom left panel uses a Heart-2-Heart #3 die cut, 
sponged with Pure Poppy ink and stamped with a 
sentiment from Clip Tips using Versamark and 
white detail embossing powder.
