Daring Cardmakers This Way Arrows

Well now I think I am addicted to challenges! lol, oh dear! But it is great to see what others are doing and get some much needed inspiration along the way!. So over on http://www.daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/ the challenge is to use arrows on your card, not something I can say I do often but I gave it a go, again another christmas image.
The image is a paperarsty santa, which I stamped onto an alcohol in background on vellum, I embossed it with black embossing powder and layered it. I cut the arrow from plain black card and I edged it with some gold ink. I ripped the vellum and stuck that on the card with the arrow on top of it, I cut mini little triangles to put along it, and I NEVER EVER WRITE on my cards, but thought this went ok, it says "santa follow the arrows to my house"
I was going to add either a button or some ribbon to the top corner then thought i would combine the two, It was only once I did it I thought I could add the little arrow ends on to the end of the ribbon, and again edged them with some gold ink. I am happy with it as its something I havent done before.

Hello Joey, You will get to know my soon I'm sure as I am one of your SBS23 sisters. I have to say that if I had read that challenge I would have left it well alone. Too much of a "challenge" for me. But you did a fantastic job, and the other contestant's cards are an inspiration.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.
