The Shabby Tea Room #81

I'm starting off the week in a fun way! Debbie asked me to be the Guest Designer this week at The Shabby Tea Room, and of course I said yes. I love TSTR! The inspiration is always so, well, inspiring. I have to admit that I was a bit nervous when I found out that this week's prompt was to use chevrons along with the colors from a photo. I hadn't exactly jumped on the 'Chevron Train', so I wasn't sure how things were going to work out. Well, luckily, I saw an awesome tutorial on making chevrons HERE, so I figured I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed doing it! Here's my card:

I started off with a piece of Core'dinations cardstock that was embossed with chevrons. Then, I created my chevron patterns using the Crate Farmhouse and Peppermint lines.

Here's the inspiration picture for this week:

Be sure to stop over at The Shabby Tea Room to see the DT cards and to play along.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day! ♥
