Go Confidently...

I had a bit of time today to do some card-making, so made a card for the Freshly Made Sketch challenge.

I am preparing this blog post on my older son's laptop as my younger son accidentally spilt my mug of green tea over my laptop.  Consequently, I've sent my laptop to rehab to dry out (ie it's on its side on the counter-top) and hope it will boot up and work okay in a couple of days.  So if things look a bit different it's because I don't have any of my normal photo editing programs on this laptop so having to make do.

I took a few liberties with the sketch this week - swapping the circle for an oval and also substituting the Island Indigo brads for the rectangular panel.  The arrow is cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

Here's the sketch:

Thanks for looking.

Such a bright and clean card! I love the color combination and how you popped up the arrow. This is one of my favorite stamp sets, but it has been neglected for awhile. I am inspired to pull it out today after seeing your beautiful card,
