Chevrons, Chevrons Everywhere

I was really excited to see the challenge at The Friday Mashup! this week.  It is to create a card with chevrons and/or to use the sketch. I just so happen to love chevrons at the moment, especially since I recently purchased the Chevron Border Punch! Fun, fun, fun! :)
I also used the Favorite Sentiment challenge from SUO Challenges and the color challenge from Create with Connie and Mary
I decided to make a card for my bestie Steph.  This started out very plain so I added a few things to make it a bit more fun.
I added the little hearts from Map it Out to the Season of Style DSP. At first I had a complete row of chevrons at the bottom and then I decided to make it look like more of an arrow. Then I thought it needed a few more hearts to bring it all together. I looked through all of my punches and found this cute little heart on the Owl Builder Punch!  That strip is popped up on Dimensionals.  Can't wait to give this card to Steph tomorrow when she comes to craft with me. She is SUCH a good friend to me and I appreciate her so much!
