The theme for the current AEI♥U challenge is "one word."  I made a card for the challenge using the Aim High stamp set and coordinating arrow dies.

Shoot card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Avery ElleMy one word was the set's "shoot" sentiment.  I stamped the word in gray ink on an angled golden yellow cardstock panel.  The stamped panel was adhered to a cardfront covered with a  yellow striped patterned paper panel.  I like how the bold, graphic stripes in the paper look with the sentiment. 

Once the panel was in place, I attached a gray die cut arrow to it, pointing to the sentiment.  The end of the arrow is tucked neatly underneath the edge of the sentiment panel.  I finished the design with a trio of gray enamel dots arranged around the sentiment.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers:  Avery Elle Aim High stamp set and Aim High dies; Tsukineko Memento Luxe Gray Flannel ink; My Mind's Eye Now and Then-Milo 6x6 paper pad; Studio Calico gray enamel dots; Sticky Thumb dimensional dots

other:  Harvest Gold cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Fog cardstock (Avery Elle)
