wayToGoApparently I was on a roll tonight.  I made this great, simple looking Congratulations card.  I was trying to figure out what I could do for the angle lines, that wasn’t ribbon.  Then I remembered I got a stamp in my Paper Pumpkin that was a great set of arrows.  Love the polymer.  I still need to work on getting a closer aim on the lineup, but for a quick congrats card not too shabby.  Freshly Made Sketches - Sketch 140

I think for the heck of it I’ll enter it over at Freshly Made Sketches.   I tried one that had different colors for the lines, but I just couldn’t get into it.   The color changes seemed way to abrupt.  I probably could have used stamping off to get a gradation of the lines, but that actually wasn’t something I thought about until just now.  At one point I thought maybe it was too plain, so I added some sequins to it randomly.  It added some shiny, but really didn’t do anything for the overall card and well they looked tacked on.  I’ll take a picture later so you can see what I mean.  I guess simple is the best.

I like all the base ideas these sites give.  Hope you have a great night and happy crafting!
