chevron stripes...

Are you crafting this evening or tomorrow?

If you are, be sure to stop over to Live Pink, which is Pink Paislee's forum, for some card inspiration this weekend! There will be 7 card challenges and 7 chances to win! My challenge is a COLOR challenge - "pair a neutral base with colorful accents", but I'm also going to show you how I created this EASY chevron technique!




Chevron seems to be all the rage these days. I found a quick and simple way to make the large Chevron stripe across my card! Come on over to Pink Paislee to see how! HOPE to see you there - we'll begin at 6 pm tonight EST! :) You'll have until Sunday evening at 11:59 pm EST to finish any of the challenges. HERE is a link to my challenge. :)
