Thankful Chevron

Hello!  I hope you all are having a nice weekend!  I'm getting ready to head to the dirt track races to watch my husband race but first I wanted to share a card I made this afternoon.

I found a couple of challenges to play with.  I used Sketch 93 from Freshly Made Sketches & also the Friday Mashup Challenge #117 Tic-Tac-Toe.

Thankful Chevron 1.1

I went with a fun, playful theme!  On vacation I purchased a paper pad by Heidi Swap called "Serendipity" that I used for the patterned paper background.  For the mashup tic-tac-toe challenge, I chose to work with "blue, butterflies & buttons" and also used a few of my favorite things.  I colored the butterfly wood piece  white with my white ink pad and then stamped the polka dots across it with a stamp in Avery Elle's "Picture It" stamp set.  A few of my favorite things that I used on this card are: PTI's Chevron Plate Vertical, Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Frames Squares Die, a white enamel dot, Simon Says Stamp sentiment & dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!
