Just popping in with a STAMPlorations card I made channeling my inner Yana S.

Created the BG of the panel using a brushstroke from Holiday Artsy and some gray and yellow Simon Says Stamp inks. Then I drew a frame around the panel. Notice the dots in the corners of the frame? Learned that from the amazingly talented Mayuri.

Then I inked up a sentiment from Typografia and stamped it on the panel. Adhered the panel, held my breath and stamped the arrows from Chevron and Arrows so that they were on both the panel and cardbase. Whew - it worked!

I'm joining the last challenge for 2014 over at Simon Says Stamp Monday - Anything Goes.

Hope your holiday preparations are going well. I'm trying to not try to make it all perfect this year! Wish me luck ;)
