HELLO!


The challenge at the Tuesday Throwdown #330 is "Say it with words" - let your sentiment be the main focus. I used chevron dsp to cut 4 strips and placed them on a piece of orange card. Yes, my eyes played tricks on me with these diagonal stripes too! I added 4 punched black stars with white pearls in the centers, then added a chevron embossed panel in black, done with a Sizzix chevron ef. The big "HELLO" stamp is by Hampton Art.

Wishing you a great Wednesday, and thanks for stopping by!

What a classy card Carol! It really Pops. I tend to shy away from chevron for some reason but I really like how you used it. Makes for an excellent masculine card for sure.

Great card today, Carol! Yes, those chevron stripes do play tricks on your eyes but I am loving the colors on this! The orange just pops against the black & white and those stars are a nice feature too! Great card as always! TFS and hope you have a nice day! Hugs~

Super dramatic design, using the diagonal stripes to make this eye-catching design. And adding the topper stars, brilliant idea! Love the red background with the b&w. TFS
