Adventure for Sunday Stamps

Happy Sunday! I'm back with a card for the new challenge up at Sunday Stamps,a fun color challenge . I'm sorry I haven't been a consistent team member this summer, life just finds a way of getting too busy at times. I promise to do better! 

Here in Alaska Denali National Park holds a road lottery for people to drive the entire length of the park road in Sept. During tourist season (early May- mid Sept) private cars can only drive to mile 15, after that you have to be on one of the park buses, hike in or ride a bike. Weather permitting in the off season private cars can drive to mile 30. The road lottery period is the only time that one can drive all the way in to mile 92 and it is an AWESOME drive! The scenery and wildlife makes it all completely worth it and we found out this week that we won a pass for the lottery and get to drive in on Sept.18th! We went a few years ago because a friend gave us her pass but this is our first time winning and I feel like it's Christmas in June :)

Moose and bear are some of the most active residents of the park so I've had that on my brain the last few days. What better set to pull out than the Warm and Fuzzy Friends set from MFT. This moose and bear are just too cute, I love them! The lake across the street from my house has rainbow trout in it and my family fishes there all the time so that's what I decided to color the fish as.

I'm a big fan of earth tone colors so my eyes immediately went to the brown and greens in our challenge photo. I used the green in my DSP and the coloring of the fish, and the brown in coloring the animals and a strip of woodgrain DSP. My card base is a retired SU color called Bordering Blue, for me it was the closest color I had to match the one on the end in the graphic.

My layout came from the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge. The moose, bear and sign took the spot of the circle on my card :)

Make sure you head over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us, we'd love to see what you do with these colors!
