Birthday Greetings

Good morning!  Today is my day for a post on The Craft's Meow blog, and since it's also my birthday today, I made a birthday card.

TCM Blog Mar 25

I stamped the open chevron from Geometric Foundations on several papers from Graphic 45's Secret Garden Patterns and Solids, then cut them apart into arrows and pieced them vertically.  I glued some of the arrows only in their centers, and pulled the edges forward for a little dimension.

I used a sentiment from Stitched Sentiments, and colored in the letters with markers in matching colors.  Here are the stamp sets I used: Geometric Foundations

I'd like to enter my card into the Card Creations Week: Chevron Challenge at Moxie Fab World.
