Girls' Camp Card...and One I Forgot to Share

First of all, a shoutout to Nicole who has a giveaway going on at her blog...go check it out!:)

Last week a friend of mine came by to ask if I would design an invitation card for the young women in our church to attend girls' camp this summer.  Their theme was following the "Survivor" reality TV show.  I took on the challenge.  I really had no idea what to come up with.  If I had a camping cricut cartridge or camping stamps...I might have been able to figure this out a lot easier.  But, since when do I take the easy route?  (Ok, frequently...) 

This is what I came up with.  I went online and found the Survivor logo and tried my hand at copying the look of the lettering.  I then made a stencil of that.  I also looked for the Young Women's logo (the torch with the face in the flame) and made a stencil of that.  Then, I kind of put them together.  It wasn't easy making a very feminine torch look tribal, and I added some stickles to it because I couldn't resist, but I think it looks okay.

I had to make 30 of these puppies.  That took some time.  But, they are done!  Now to get back to finishing up the card set I have been working on all week.  In the meantime, here is a card I forgot to post here.  It was added to the Pink Gallery a couple weeks ago.  I made it with the Doodlebug Charms cartridge.  I thought it would be a fun get well card.  Enjoy!
