Chevrons

I just got some chevron dies from Die-Namics, and wanted to give them a test run.  How nice of Embellish Magazine to have a challenge that calls for chevrons!  Here is their photo inspiration:


And here is my card for the challenge:

Embellish Magazine chevron challenge

supplies: white and grey cardstock, PTI Aqua Mist, Plum Pudding, and Lavender Moon cardstocks, MFT Die-Namics Chevron Stripes dies, Hero Arts CL267 Card Messages, dusty concord distress ink, crochet flower, aqua button, and white twine


And since the Simon Says Stamp challenge is "Anything Goes" this week, I'm entering this into that also:
