I (really) MISS YOU

Hello! Just popping in before the deadline to share a card for this month's Avery Elle July AEI♥U Challenge! I was gone on vacation when the challenge started, and this was the first chance I have had to play along! Here is what I made - very clean and simple for me!

Here is the challenge inspiration photo:

I had to think outside the box a bit on this one, since I really didn't have an Avery Elle set that included arrows or anything similar. As I looked at my sets though, an idea popped into my head! I used Petals and Stems for the straight part of the arrow (masking off the curly-Q at the end) and one of the leaves for the end of my arrow. The heart for the tip of the arrow is from Lots of Love, and the sentiment (which I thought was such a fun play on words with the arrow!) is from Handwritten Notes

I pulled my colors from the inspiration photo, and used MFT inks. Cardstock is Avery Elle white cardstock - my FAV right now! It is so thick and strong and smooth! I added a couple of score lines above and below the main panel, a few clear sequins also from Avery Elle, and a bit of jute twine in ivory to finish it off!

Thanks for dropping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful day!


  1. Just gorgeous! Love how you though creatively about how to incorporate the arrows!

  2. This is really cute! So creative the way you came up with it :)
