Seize the Birthday ~ Chevrons!!

Welcome back to another Seize the Birthday Challenge!  This time we are looking for CHEVRONS as our special topping...I hope you will check out the wonderful "chevron" inspiration from the design team over at Seize the Birthday .
I pulled out a chevron from a Studio Calico set and masked off part of my card to give it the angle, then I stamped the chevron across the page.  Since I was at my BFF's house for 4 days, I borrowed her "happy" dies from PTI and placed it along the edge.
I stamped the chevron in aqua mist along a narrow strip and attached it to both sides of the card.
The balloons are from PTI Heart to Heart with a little bow hanging off the "y".
As usual, this is just a "topping" for the birthday card,
you may do without if you like.
We would love to see whatever you create as long as it is a birthday card!
Our "Toppings" option this time is

"Chevrons"

  3. Very pretty. Love the way you masked off part of the chevron stamp, plus the Happy die with the cute little bow for the balloon strings. It looks like you and I had the same idea with the balloons. A fabulous card.
