CASology 50: Free Form MDS Card

My craft room is still a disaster due to my decision to reorganize, so here is another card with MDS.  This inspiration is not a sketch or a color challenge. 

CASology has given a word as the inspiration for this weeks challenge.  What does "free" mean to you?  I chose to interpret this as a free form design with a freedom theme.

To keep this card Clean and Simple I used some splatter to color the background.  The sentiment and shoe prints as from the Daring Adventure Stamp Brush Set.  I love the possibilities that the word "adventure" offers and adventures always make me think of freedom. (Note: The black edge was added to make the card edges clear for this post, the actual card does not have this border.)

The interior of the card is a quote from Robert Frost.  Being bold can sometimes lead to great adventures.  For a busy wife, mom, and friend my chances usually involve signing up for a swap I am not sure how to accomplish or choosing to walk a trail I have never been on before.  All these adventures give me a feeling of freedom.  Free to take chances, free to try new things, and free to be myself.  What bold choice will you make today?

Supplies: MDS (#130910), Daring Adventure Stamp Brush Set (#124224), Word Window Punch (#122161), Splatter Tool, Text Tool
Colors: Pear Pizzaz, Rich Razzleberry, Island Indigo
