Chevrons & Flowers

You might just say I'm going a little crazy with chevrons and flowers. I've created several cards wtih this theme. Thanks to some recent challenges out there, I have rediscovered a pair of decorative scissors that I used here to create the chevrons. For this card I simple cut three chevrons and punched a bunch of flowers from cardstock. I added punched centers and added a bit of detail to each flower with a white colored pencil. To highlight the chevrons a bit more, I used a needle and pierced the cardstock along each chevron.

If you go to CAS-ual Fridays or the new Fusion Card Challenge, you'll find that both blogs are using the chevron and flowers as challenges.  For the Fusion challenge there are several options.
We can use the sketch provided by Jackie, or Lesley's inspirational photo to create a card.  The last option is to "Fuse" them and use a bit of each, which is what I did for this card.

 Supplies: Cardbase: Paper Studios, Cardstock: Bazzil (green) and red, yellow, cream and blue scraps, Needle,Crayol White Colored Pencil, Stampin' Up Flower punch,Circle punch? no name on it,  Adhesive: Scotch Quick Dry
