Zig Zag Hello

Hi and welcome!  Today's card was made using the latest challenge from the Freshly Made Sketches team where our hostess this week is Linda Callahan.
I did some emboss-resist for my card, using the gorgeous Roses All Over stamp from MFT. 

After I'd white-embossed the stamp onto some Bristol Smooth cardstock, I blended on some Distress Inks and then die-cut it with a stitched rectangle die.  I then took a chevron die and cut along the bottom for a bit of added interest before mounting it onto a black mat.  Keeping with the black, I cut two strips of cardstock and stamped the same stamp onto them with Versamark ink for a tone-on-tone look (which you can't see in the photos!)

Finally, I finished with a scripty hello.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Head on over and check out how the rest of the DT have interpreted Linda's sketch - they're all wonderful!

Awesome take on the sketch, Karren! I'm loving how you placed the Stepped Up Chevron and your ink blending on the roses is just beautiful! Also, your use of black on this card is so striking...I LOVE it!!!

This is so cool! I love the division between the upper and lower colors. But I especially love how your vertical layers are different widths. What a difference it makes in the design!
