Your card is awesome - much like the sentiment you used on your card. Love how you incorporated so many different items into your card with the dp and the use of the flowers and arrow. The stamped images of the distressed dots and arrow are a perfect compliment to this card and the finishing touch of such a bold sentiment makes the card pop.
