When I saw the May sketch challenge from Stampin' Celebration (SC77S), one of the ideas that came to mind was a bullseye!  It was one of those "trying to go to sleep Ah Ha moments!".  I even had to physically get out of bed because I knew I would not be able to go to sleep without making the bullseye.  Luckily that did the trick, along with a small dose of melatonin.

What better way to make a bullseye than to use the circle framelits.  I decided to use the colors from my company (red and gray) and make a card for a colleague who was promoted.

With the bullseye as the focal point, I knew I needed an arrow (no brainer).  I stamped the arrow from Peachy Keen onto Smoky Slate cardstock and fussy cut the arrow.  Then I stamped the greeting (Express Yourself Hostess Stamp Set) on the opposite side of the stamped image.  The stamping really only gave me the right size image to fussy cut.  I used the arrow from the On Film Framelits Die (2014 Occasions Catalog) set and cut the arrow mat out from Basic Gray cardstock.  I added a few rhinestones to the bulls eye to add some bling.

For the banner, I embossed Whisper White with the arrow textured embossing folder (2014 Occasions catalog) and then ran real red, basic gray, basic black and smoky slate through the same embossing folder and added some color to the banner by cutting out the images and gluing them into the whisper white banner.  

I decided the background needed a little grunge so I used Off the Grid Stamp Set on the background.

I think my colleague will get a kick out of this card!  I think I am the only one who really cares about the company colors.  But colors mean a lot to me!

Hope you got some inspiration from the card!  The bullseye idea can be used for any congratulation-type occasion!

  1. Fabulous, Wendi! I love how you've used the Arrows embossing folder. Great card, that I'm sure your colleague will be super-impressed with. :)

  2. I love this! I am glad I am not the only one who needs to get out of bed to scurry to her craft room....and I am going to have to try that melatonin!
