Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop/Make it Monday #67 - Chevron extravaganza

 This month at Papertrey Ink, this is our inspiration for the blog hop:
For my final card, I decided to take the colour scheme and the patterns and use that as my inspiration.  Since I have the new chevron dies, I don't have to make faux chevron die cuts like I did here in this post:
So I went to town cutting lots of strips of chevrons from a patterned pack of paper that has a subtle glittery green with an overall colour scheme of black and white.  Perfect for this blog hop (and you can see in my posts of other cards that I used these patterned papers a lot for my contributions this month! :P)
I glued them all to a piece of asparagus card stock with some Tombo Mono Multi glue and then cut the overhanging pieces to make all of them flush on the card panel. 
Ah, I just love chevrons!  Thanks, Papertrey, for coming out with those this month!  It is rare for me not to stamp or put a sentiment of some sort on but I kept this one super simple and if I want a sentiment, I will stamp one on the inside when I decide what occasion this will be for!  It is definitely for my brother in law as he likes these shades ...

I will be adding this card to the Make it Monday challenge at Papertrey as well since it does incorporate lots of different patterned papers.  I love stretching myself and branching out to other styles, techniques and colour schemes.

Plus, since it has more of a masculine vibe with the dark green and fine linen, I am also entering it into the CAS Fridays challenge with patterned papers and a masculine theme.

Supplies:
Paper: PTI fine linen, My Mind's Eye Garden Vignettes, Gina K asparagus
Misc: foam dots, PTI chevron dies
