Neon Pink Arrows

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Hope everyone is having an amazing day!  I am still so thrilled about my Guest Designer spot for Heartstring Designs!  I hope you can join us over at on March 1st for an amazing March release!  This blog hop is filled with six Heartstring Designers and two Guest Designers, Me and Rhonda Ratliff over at This kit is Jam Packed with goodies. You will not want to miss this event!! Games, Prizes and more the week leading up to the release so look for that event it is coming soon!!!!  As you can tell I am very excited!!

So onto my card I created today.....I am once again participating in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge HERE this week and using this same card for the MemoryWorks February Studio Challenge.  The challenge for this week at SSS is to USE AN ARROW and the challenge for the MW Studio is to focus on a trend, technique or product you love in a layout, card or project.  

I have seen a lot of arrows being used in a lot of different lines so that is the trend I picked for the MW challenge.  Also I have seen a lot of neon colors!  Not only in crafting but in fashion as well so I decided to use some neon ink from Hero Arts!  I used an arrow stamp that came in my August 2012 SSS card kit and inked it up with some Hero Arts Neon Pink ink and created this background on a piece of white cardstock.  I then adhered that to a black standard size card base and used Papertry Ink stamp set Framed Out #5 for my sentiment and cut it out with the matching die.  I also used a Tim Holtz spinner and attached it to the tag and added some glittered fancy floss from We R Memory Keepers!  Thanks for stopping by and checking out my post for today!
