CFC107: Hunger Games

It's CAS-ual Fridays time! 

Who loves the Hunger Games?! 

This week's challenge, CFC107: Hunger Games...
create a CAS project using arrows! 

Arrows are definitely a hot trend right now! I didn't have any true arrow stamps, but I did have a red arrow die cut frame like this and a wooden Hello frame like this (bottom), but I searched the internet for other arrow possibilities, which led me here, to the free arrow I used. And by the way, I am totally making those for my students for Valentine's Day next year! I just opened the image in Photoshop, resized it smaller, printed, and cut it out! Easy!

Now here's a secret about this card...the base, including the chevron embossing and spray misting, was already completed and rejected from a previous project. I noticed the spray mist kind of matched the pink of the arrow, then I found the Amy Tangerine sticker, and boom, done! 

If only it was really that easy, ha. I continued to try other possibilities for several days, until my head and neck were killing me and I was filled with anxiety, and I gave up and scanned the original card at midnight. What can I say, I'm all about self-induced pressure. Is there a group that meets for that?!

Are you ready to play along? This week's winner will receive a $25 gift certificate from our sponsor, Simon Says Stamps! Woot! Woot!

Head over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog to link up and check out the awesome arrow cards from the other Girl Fridays! They put mine to shame...and without any anxiety attacks too, I bet! hehe! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Hi Angie, I've come here from the Cas-ual Fridays website cos I'm totally bemused by your embossing! I'm amazed the card and folder would go through the Big Shot with that placement - I take it the folder isn't a 5" folder?

Oh I loved The Hunger Games! You and Katniss think outside the box - the off kilter embossing is perfect!

Ooh-I love this! Those chevrons are perfect for the arrow accent, even if they were from an earlier card! Great design, Angie!
