MFT Card Design Superstar Contest

I'm back today with another card for the My Favorite Things "You Could Be a Card Design Superstar" card contest.  This is card #3.

My card today uses the Dienamics Chevron Cover-up die.

Dies are one of my favorite design elements and MFT has some of the BEST dies out there!  I cut a rainbow of colors from the chevron die and mounted them on foam tape.  I placed the outer part of the die on my card base to use as a guide to place the chevrons, then removed it, leaving just the raised chevrons.  I love this look!  I stamped some of the pretty flowers from Polynesian Paradise and fussy cut them.  For the sentiment I cut the word "happy" from black card stock, and for the word "birthday" which is from the new Label Maker Sentiments I stamped with Versamark ink on black card stock and embossed in white.  I finished the card with some gold thread behind the flowers, and some Pretty Pink Posh gold sequins.  I love the look of the black and white flowers on top of a colorful background, I think it really makes the flowers sing!

Have a fabulous day, thanks for stopping by!
