Positively Chevron

Hi All,

Happy Sunday!  I hope you all are having a great weekend so far.  I had a few girls over for a workshop yesterday, so I've been able to get a bit crafty this weekend. It ALWAYS feels good :)

The card I have for you today is from my January workshop.  The theme...Crazy for Chevrons.  I LOVE them and was excited to play with my new addition: the Positively Chevron background stamp.

The inspiration for my card was this stunner by Amy Crockett.  The yellow is just gorgeous!  Since I wanted to coordinate the Chevron Ribbon with the Chevron stamp, I had to go with a color that I had in stock, which just happened to be Wisteria Wonder.  I paired it up with Crumb Cake and they are just beautiful together.

Do you notice anything new on this card...maybe a little stitching around the sentiment???  Well, when my mom was in town over the holidays, I had her help me set up the brand new sewing machine that had been sitting in my craft room for the past 18 months.  As I was playing with it, I realized that it's also an embroidery, it's got tons of stitches.  I must say though, the simple zig-zag is my favorite.

I love the softness of this card, and of course, the Chevrons are pretty awesome too!  Both the Positively Chevron background stamp and Chevron ribbon are currently available through Stampin' Up.  They are a "must-have" for your collection!
