MFW Chevron Challenge

I have been going through some of my older paper pads trying to decide whether to hang on to them or sign up for a local scrapbook store garage sale and clear out some of my stash. The problem is, every time I go through the paper I find something I like.

Here is a chevron pattern I found last night and immediately thought of Cath's Chevron Challenge at Moxie Fab World to celebrate the new issue of Card Creations.

To create a larger chevron pattern, I cut the paper in strips along the peaks of the chevron and then rearranged them on a piece of yellow patterned paper. There is a slight gap between the paper strips to add a bit of dimension and interest.

I trimmed the new panel along the edge of the chevron and added a birthday sentiment with foam adhesive.

You have until the end of the month to join in the fun - there are always great challenges to choose from at Moxie Fab World!
