May the odds be Ever in your Favor…

Hi! Today I’m playing along with CASE Study because I love the marbled effect of the card AND CAS-sual Fridays challenge theme which is Hunger Games because I just finished the trilogy.

This is the card I came up with:

hunger_games_greeting_card

I used a lovely cut file from Creativity = Sanity.  I sprayed the image with Tsukineko’s Fireworks sprays in Dandelion, Lady Bug, and Tangelo to get the marbled color effect.  I dabbed Ranger Stickles in gold onto the arrow for a little pop.  I created the sentiment digitally and I used leftover scraps for the small banners to give balance to the large mockingjay.  A happy accident occurred when I placed my card down on a spray covered desk, resulting in yellow specks on the card front.

I enjoyed the Hunger Games trilogy and one phrase that stood out to me was Effie Trinket saying “May the odds be ever in your favor!”

One tip: I left the cutout on the silhouette mat and sprayed it.  I believe this reduced curling. Thanks for stopping by! xo- Tyra

  2. Perfect take on the CAS-ual Fridays challenge. My daughter would swoon if she saw this. I’ve not read the books although the film was good ( just didn’t like the kids killing each other!!).
