I combined the color challenge with the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and the Friday Mashup challenge to use chevrons and this is the result.
I used the Dictionary background on a Crumb Cake card base and also on some Whisper White squares. For the squares, I bent the stamp so that only a portion of it touched the cardstock. I mounted these squares onto Perfect Plum mats. The focal point caused me some grief! I started out with flowers, then moved onto butterflies, then finally settled on Raspberry Ripple Ginkgo leaves - not very natural I know! The chevrons are also in Raspberry Ripple and the greeting from On Your Birthday is in Basic Black.
There are no embellishments on this card as I thought there was enough going on!
Thanks for looking.
