Approximate symmetry

The use of forms which are similar on either side of a central axis. They may give a feeling of the exactness or equal relationship but are sufficiently varied to prevent visual monotony.

( My circle would be the central axis of my card with the footprints in approximate symmetry. )

Jan. 26-Feb. 1 Designer Drafts challenge

I stamped the footprints first and then took my paper to the Cricut to cut out a 2½" hole. Used Ranger Distress paints to color the inside of the circle and then stamped the tent. I stamped the tent on pattern Love paper and paper pieced it together, free hand the sentiment. Inked lightly around the edge of the base.

This card made my heart smile. My late hubby and I camped for 18 years all over the place and what fun memories this brought to mind. I was feeling blue thinking about his birthday tomorrow, and this card just felt so timed for me to see. I have to find this set now. Enjoy the weekend.
