A State of Confusion?

The challenge for Simon Says Stamp this week is to use an "arrow" on your card. I've used several arrows for the background, and pierced around the outside edges before adhering to a piece of Pacific Point card stock. I stamped this Mudpie Tells image on Neenah white cs and colored him with Copics, adding berry sorbet cardstock and twill ribbon. The question marks were done with my Quikutz. With the arrows pointing in so many different directions, this image seemed like the perfect choice, because he has no clue which way to turn - much like me some days! LOL

Because I used scraps of the berry sorbet cs, I'm also entering this into the  Pixies Crafty Snippets Playground #60. I have no idea what this card can be used for? It just came together once I stamped the arrows - which BTW is a $1 stamp I got at Joann's eons ago!

May your day bring you good decisions with no confusion :) Thanks for stopping by!

{Donna, please don't call the challenge police on me again this week. I know the challenge clearly states to "use AN arrow" and I've used more than one. I think I'm just unable to read directions some times! :) }

Love the disclaimer and this card is just too cute. Those colors are amazing together. I see this as a BD card with the sentiment inside saying "You are how old?"

Oh, my, Carol, but how does one limit ones elf to just one arrow?! IRL, aren't arrows coming at us from all different directions, as so perfectly illustrated with your fantastic card?!!

I love how you've made the background with the multi-directional arrows. Maybe it could be a graduation card...if you write on the inside something about choosing a future path and being able to go in any direction?
