Exciting News to Share!!

My sweet friend Iwona Palamountain, Chupa, has selected me to be the the July muse for the Case Study Challenge Blog!!!  Whoooo hooo!  What an honor!!!! I am completely thrilled!!   This week she chose this card:
which is one of my all-time favorite cards!!  I found it was a little intimidating to try to case this card. Silly me.  I don't know, but I think it was just such a part of my heart, I couldn't step out of the box and case it.  After much speculation and thought, I decided it would be fun to do a boys card as I really don't do many boys cards and I have a sweet little camping stamp set I had yet to play with!
I chose to mask a square and ink the inside.  I added the cute little dipper stamp into the night sky.  At first, the card was just the tent and trees, but I decided to add some animals to make it a little more fun and then I added the inside sentiment, "Wild Thing".
Supplies Used:
Papertrey Ink Stamps:  In the Meadow and Summer Camp, Through the Trees
Papertrey Ink Dies:  Star Border and In the Meadow
Papertrey Ink Cardstock:  True Black, Pure Poppy, Spring Moss
Papertrey Ink Paper:  Simply Chartreuse, Stamper's Select White
Papertrey Ink:  Simply Chartreuse, Spring Rain, Enchanted Evening, Dark Chocolate

Thanks for stopping by!! I truly appreciate all of you!!!
