Geometric Birthday


Today's card is for 3 different challenges.  I started out by looking at the design from CAS(E) This Sketch.  I wanted to use the chevron pattern and when I saw the current Runway Inspired photo I thought it would work well with this and so used the colours from the model's shirt (although looking at the shirt more closely now I should have used Bermuda Bay for my blue instead of Island Indigo).  Since each of the pieces that make up the chevrons are actually parallelograms I am also going to enter this in the Geometric Patterns challenge at Virginia's View.  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, Basic Grey, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Halftone Hello) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Chevron Cover Plate) Lil' Inker Designs, (Happy) Mama Elephant
Other:  (Glossy Accents) Ranger

I like how gender neutral this birthday card is, with the color scheme and chevron pattern. By the way, what do you do with all the cards that you do for these challenges?
