CCC #62... shine brightly

Hello friends!!   Tuesday has rolled around once, again, and with it a brand new CASology cue word.  There were some seriously fabulous entries for last week's "silhouette" challenge!  All I can say is ladies you ROCKED that challenge!!  But I digress and must get to the point (hee hee!) of today's post... revealing this week's cue word:  arrow!  Arrows are super trendy right now so I know that all you super crafty gals will be filling the gallery with amazing amounts of fabulous!! All the details for the challenge can be found here.   And joining us this week in the guest designer spot is the very talented Janet!!! 




Quite some months ago I purchased some fun little paper clip thingies from Stampin Up! The assortment contains little clothes hangers, speech bubbles and arrows.   So I knew I just had to use one of them on today's card.  I don't own many sets with arrows in them, but I did purchase this fun MFT/LLD set called "Mod Borders" that has some fun arrow borders.  I decided to go a bit bold and stamped the arrows using Mememto Dandelion ink.  As the border image was longer than I needed I simply masked off a portion using a post it note then inked up the remaining portion and stamped.  I thought the sentiment (from the MFT/LJD set "On the Line") fit perfectly with the bright yellow.  I stamped it in Tuxedo Black and then die cut it with a Spellbinders plain circle die.  One of the arrows was attached and then the sentiment was matted with a circle die cut from black cardstock.  The piece was then attached and I was done. 

hanks for stopping by... ...I cannot wait to see what fun "arrow" ideas all you super talented paper crafters come up with for this challenge!! In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Judy, Meghan, Ardyth, Gillian, Maureen, Kimberly, Jen and Tracey and our guest designer, Janet!

Cardstock:  PTI white and black; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Inks:  Memento Dandelion & Tuxedo Black; Stampin Up! arrow clip; Spellbinders plain circle dies
