Free Hug

Hi all, I started this card Tuesday evening but couldn't finish it until today due to me trying to be in the circus by flying downstairs on one's arse, yep I slipped and fell all the way downstairs, I feel like I have had a few rounds with Frank Bruno lol lol. As I have been doing lots of sofa craft colouring I thought I had better make a card up, and went for the saturated canary free hug stamp with bright orange for a cheer up colour.  I want to enter my card into the following challenges -
                                                                           Sketch Saturday - picture of sketch I followed below
                                                                           Totally Gorjuss - Anything Goes

Card
 Close Up

Can you see my mistake?


The problem with coming back to a card that you only needed to put topper on and need to finish quickly as the sketch challenge was finishing, yep I put the centre piece on wrong, so this card will be great for a left handed person to open lol.  Better be off, and I send lots of free hugs to you all :-) Kerry xxx
