Chevron Vase

**This is my second post for the day.  Please scroll down or click here for my Retrosketches/JUGS post**


As promised I'm back with another post. This card is for the latest Embellish challenge - this time to use chevrons and this sweet colour palette in your design. I've seen this layout around a lot lately - and used it once before - and really like it's versatility.  For this card I pulled out 4 Papertrey Ink sets to ink up and dressed up the flowers with some bling.  I'll also be sending this card over to the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge to meet up with it's friends from my last few posts!  :) 


I'm trying to make lots of Mother's and Father's Day cards as I have an Art in the Park event coming up next weekend and figure these might be handy to have.  Should really make some graduation cards too...  


Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Perfect Plum, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Vase & flowers from Asian Fusion, Oval from On My Couch Additions, Chevrons from Background Basics: Chevron Stripes, Sentiment from Fillable Frames #4) PTI
Inks: (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Perfect Plum) Stampin' Up

Gems:  (Cupcake Assortment) Doodlebug

I love everything about this card. What a great way to use Asian Fusion, one of my fave, but least used, sets. Pinning--OK?
