Night Sky

We are campers we have been known to spend 2 weeks in a tent as our main summer holiday. Our last time was a massive disaster we went on a 2 week adventure holiday. We had canoeing, abseiling, rock climbing the whole works booked and had looked forward for 12 months. 48 hours in our boy had rushed to hospital with acute appendicitis. Managing a 10 year old in a tent post surgery was an experience I do not care to repeat ever!!! We were 8 hours from home and he couldn't sit up for longer than 30 minutes so coming home was out of the question we just had to get on with it. Needless to say we did nothing of our adventure holiday and I ended up just giving our slots away so that they did not go to waste.

We keep saying we will go back and again, obviously minus the hospital 

That quickly drifted from card making didn't it. Whoops! This card does however use the Happy Campers Stamp Set by Clearly Besotted

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

The sentiment was heat embossed onto a piece of white card. Trimmed and the corners were rounded

A second piece of card were coloured in Chipped sapphire and cut slightly bigger then the sentiment. These were adhered together with foam squares and then glued onto.the card base with double sided tape

Nuvo drops in silver Moonlight were dotted onto.the circle.
The image was stamped, coloured and fussy cut out then adhered onto.the card. See the picture below for the placement
