Birthday Billboard

Hello All!

For today I am playing with City Crafters Challenge Blog, Freshly Made Sketches, and Sparkle & Shine Challenge.

To lighten up the card I left some of the borders on the chevs white.
The card reminds me of a billboard. 
Using my negative space I added a bit of glitter in assorted colors.

Entering Challenges:
City Crafters Challenge Blog: Week 299- Negativity 
Freshly Made Sketches: FM224
Sparkle & Shine Challenge: twenty four


This card reminds me of a birthday billboard.. Celebrating for all to see! I wonder if chevrons will ever go out of style. I don't think so because it is so classic and can be applied to so many applications, from fashion to.... well.... cards! It is so dark and gloomy today that I felt like using glitter in my negative space. It fills the card with color and sparkle.

That should do it for me.. Have to go and pick up my kiddo's from school.. Hopefully they had a good day.. Thank you so much for stopping by and spending time with me. I really do appreciate it.

All the Best,
