Chevron Birthday

It's Sunday evening here and I had a wee bit of time today to make a card for a few challenges.  This card uses the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments, the colors from Fab Friday and the chevron theme from Seize the Birthday.

I dry embossed part of the card base using the Chevron EF then white embossed pieces of Real Red and Coastal Cabana cardstock using Positively Chevron and white EP.  I cut a panel of Whisper White and rounded opposite corners.  I then stamped the sentiment using Real Red.  I already had the "birthday" die cut on my table so decided to put that to good use.

I tied some red twine around the card but it still looked like it was missing something so I randomly placed some Candy Dots on the card.

Thanks for looking.
