Chevrons and Flowers in Threes

I created this card for 2 challenges.

Ardyth's One Layer Wednesday challenge is to have something in 3's -  I used 3 stamps, 3 inks - and even the hyacinth has 3 blooms on it (if you don't count that tiny one on the left just starting to grow!  I know it looks like I masked the chevron to stamp the hyacinth - but I didn't (!) I just managed to stamp it perfectly in line with the dip in the chevron! (that wouldn't happen too often!!)

This week's Cas-ual Fridays challenge is to feature both chevrons and flowers on your CAS card.

My hyacinth is from Vintage Garden Flowers, the chevron is from Off Beat Backgrounds and the 'in sympathy' sentiment is from Asian Garden Additions - all from Waltzingmouse.

I've had a really bad cold all week -  sore throat, stuffed then runny nose and generally feeling 'yuck'!!  Kent came down with it on Easter morning and was generous enough to pass it on to me!!  So I'm heading for the couch soon!

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

I'll be posting WMS April Release Sneak Peeks along with the rest of the Design Team starting April 15th - and the Friends of WMS Blog party is coming up on 4/17 - the theme this month is Spring Flowers - check out the details on the WMS blog.




Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Vintage Garden Flowers, Off Beat Backgrounds, Asian Garden Additions.
Paper:  Vintage Cream - PTI
