Fun with Chevrons

Oh boy, what a week I've had.  We've been going through our Fiscal Year End at work so I've been working long (VERY long) hours this past week.   I would leave the house before my hubby even stirred in bed and came home long after he'd already gone BACK to bed.  My dog missed me so much that in the morning he'd come hang out in the bathroom with me as I got ready for another long day at work.  We finished up Friday night and I was anxious to get back in my 'Little Corner of Stampinheaven' to play.

Even though I knew I wouldn't be able to create until today, I still checked out my favorite blog challenges everyday.   So today, I revisited a few that I wanted to participate in. Today, I created a card that I could enter into three of my favorite challenges - Unscripted Sketches (sketch), CAS-ual Fridays (Chevron and Flowers) and Dynamic Duos (colors).



The colors I used for this card are Close To My Heart's color Juniper and Ruby.  I love these two colors together.  I'm not sure I would have chosen these had I not seen the color on the Dynamic Duos Challenge.  I used In the Background (D1540) to stamp my chevron image.  I cut the flowers using my Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and stamped them with the Girls Rock (C1538) stamp set.   "Happy Birthday" is from the set Perfect Fit - Birthday (B1417).  My finishing touch are sparkles from the Clear Assortment (Z1752).
