A card with Q & As

Wa-hoooooooo for Friday-Eve! Only one more of these babies to go before I'm off for the Easter break for two weeks *wink*

Well Friday-Eves and CASE Study challenges go together like peas and carrots! So let's check out and study this card up for CASEing by our fabulous muse, Laura Bassen.

Check out the original post of this card here!

I was totally inspired by Laura's layout and use of cool polka dots:

Time to Celebrate

Now I had to explain this card to my sparked a lot of questions for some reason. So for those of you who are thinking, "what's the deal with that red arrow?" Well the point of it actually functions as the clocks hands too :)

The next question he asked was, "How did you create those arrows without an arrow stamp?"
My answer was, "Simples! Ink up one side of the frame stamp from WMS Frame-it, and then stamp the corner of the frame to create my arrow heads."

Love it when my guy is interested (or pretending to be interested!) in something I'm passionate about :)

Now we'd love to see how Laura's card inspires you! If you need more inky inspiration then be sure to check out the super-duper talented CASE Study DT:

Great card Aimes - you totally enabled me to buy this patterned paper, and I love how you paired the clock face and red arrow!
