CFC97 - Chevrons and Flowers


I knew as soon as I saw this morning's CASual Friday challenge what I wanted to do.



This is a variation on a card I made previously - the use of the Stamps of Life chevron as the leaves is the same, but the flowers are made differently, using a leaf from Paper Smooches Leafy Greens.

Such a lovely spring feeling from this pretty row of tulips - I can't wait to see them for real!

Totally remember this card design from last year (it is so stunningly clever), BUT I love this one even more. Know why? Because the tops of your tulips are ... CHEVRONS!!!! Oh how that pleases my brain! Thanks for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, Ardyth : )

I agree with Tara, why can't my brain see things the Ardyth way! :) This card is both clever and cute at the same time!

Geri said...

Yep, Tara has asked a really good question....why can't our brains think like yours?

Clean, simple, clever!

Especially love the little grey circles that anchor the images!
