UPDATE: My card won an "Honorable Mention Cup of Tea" for
The Shabby Tea Room's Challenge #81.
When I saw that this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room was to design a card incorporating chevrons, I knew I had to enter because I had just purchased some Echo Park Paper that had a chevron design! What luck! I was able to use most of the selected colors (blue, green, orange, cream, and brown) in my card, but I had to substitute purple for blue.
Using a tutorial from Splitcoaststampers, I created a criss-cross card. I found some green ribbon in my stash, and using a permanent orange marker, I colored the white dashes on the ribbon orange so it would coordinate with the paper. I also made some "not found in nature" flowers from some flowers I had, and then I painted the petals with Stickles. I finished by mounting the card on a piece of brown cardstock to make the card "pop."
