Mystery Monday Stamping Adventure Card

This week's Mystery Monday Stamping with Sharon Armstrong had a bit of a mix-up that I'm going to call a happy mistake. In her weekly Sunday email, Sharon had inadvertantly sent out clues for next week's card instead of this week's card, and so there was some confusion in the group as she proceeded to give the clues for this week's card and they didn't match the sizes of the papers we had all cut out based on the clues we had received. This might not make sense to you if you haven't tried Mystery Monday Stamping, but Sharon emails clues each week on Sunday so participants can cut out various papers to be ready to assemble a card using clues Sharon shares during Mystery Monday Stamping on YouTube. The card below features the clues that were supposed to be for 9/18/23. I just copied down the first page of clues Sharon shared onscreen and then used her example card as a pattern to make mine. I've saved the papers I had cut out based on Sunday's email so that I can make another card with those later. The way I see it, we really got two card ideas instead of just one last night 😀. 

My camping-themed pattern paper is by Echo Park, and the "And so the adventure begins" stamp is from Tim Holtz. The tent is a free SVG from Creative Fabrika that I colored using my Ohuhu alcohol markers after doing a print and cut of it using my Silhouette Cameo 4. 

 Challenges I'm entering:
