4th Birthday

My grandsons are growing up way too fast! Little Charlie chose camping as the theme for his birthday party and my daughter did an awesome job decorating - complete with tent and plastic campfire in the family room!  The camp scene on this card is a digi from Squigglefly and colored with Copics, water color pencils and chalks.  The tents and campfire are layered with dimensionals.  The little critters are from Jackie Topa's Cute Critters class and since they have no bodies, they are peeking out from behind the tents.  The lettering is done with my Silhouette, as was the sentiment inside the card. The colored cardstock is Gumball Green and Early Espresso.  Charlie even got the makings for S'mores for his plastic campfire.  Summer can't come soon enough, even for a four year old!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments - For a Child
Dream Valley - Happy Birthday
Ruby's Rainbow - Happy Birthday
