It was my cousin's wedding this weekend up in the Caribou! My cousin, Jill, is always up for an outdoor adventure, so when I saw the Build-a-Campsite from Lawn Fawn I knew that would be just what I needed to make her a special wedding card.

I used the Forest Backdrop to start planning my card. I wanted to pair it with the Watercolor Wishes Rainbow papers and settled on a yellow sky. I feel like this scene shows the spectacular sky that you might wake up early to with a cozy fire when watching for a sunrise in the mountains. I used the Mountain stencil and Pumice Stone distress oxide to add some mountains in the background. I am linking up with the Lawn Fawnatics spectacular skies challenge.

To make the tent, I was really loving an older plaid from Perfectly Plaid: Chill and thought it would look fantastic as the inside of my tent. I paired it with the cream Let It Shine paper and inked up some white cardstock with Turmeric ink from Pigment Craft Co. that matched up. I just had to add the little tent peg in there with some Silver Foil paper.

Now, for the finishing touches. I decided to put two bears in the tent for a couple of reasons. Though my cousin is currently working on a job involving grizzly bears, before she had that job, bears were actually the inspiration/motivation behind her proposal last year. I chose the colours of the bears based on the bride & broom's hair colours. I also just HAD to include the CAMP sign somehow on this card because that is what we call our family cabin that we meet up at each summer. I decided to add in Jill & Teresa's initials to the woodgrain paper in the top corner - almost to be like they were carved into a tree. I masked letters and added a sentiment from Reveal Wheel Sentiments.
