Rainbow chevrons...

Hello boys and girls!

How are we all?  I for one am super tired - but in a good way!  This bank holiday weekend the weather has been unusually kind to us and we have indeed made the most of it :)  I have spent the weekend mostly outdoors scooting all over the county visiting places I've not been to before and of course, today's May Day Bike Rally in Hastings - it was fabulous!  Last year there were around 42,000 bikes and 79,000 people in attendance - I wouldn't be surprised if this year was on a par, it was awesome!

I hope you've all had wonderful weekends too...going to work tomorrow is going to be tough!  :)

Now for the card that I'm here's a card I've made using the brilliant inspiration over at the Fusion Card Challenge blog.  I haven't played along with this one for ages, but I just had to find time to enter this time as it is too awesome to miss!

Here's my card...

Surprise, surprise guys...we have black, white and rainbows!!  I used both the inspiration image and the sketch (if not a slightly adapted version of the sketch) :)

I heat embossed each chevron 'strip' individually which took rather a lot longer than I was expecting, however it was worth it because I am pleased with the outcome :)  Add a few black chevrons cut from card and an embossed sentiment and Bob's your Uncle!  

Here is the inspiration...there's still a small window of opportunity to enter this challenge if you haven't already!!

I hope you all enjoy your week - I will be back soon, I promise!  :)

Thanks for stopping by ;)
