Cardstock Chevrons

Hello everyone. I have a clean and simple card today using only cardstock and the chevron technique that I posted a picture tutorial for here. This is release week at Flourishes, so I am entering this card in their Colorful Creations Challenge for a chance to win the March release. I am also entering this card in retro sketches #54 challenge.

**** Just a note about creating this pattern. When using strips of varying widths be sure to vary the inset when you are creating your strip stack. For this pattern above the lt. and dk. blue strips are 1/4" wide and the white and yellow strips are 1/8". As you lay each strip down you should inset it by the width of the strip below it. So here my yellow strip was inset 1/4" (the width of the dk blue strip below it) and the lt. blue strip was inset by 1/8" (the width of the yellow strip below it) and so on. Please refer to my picture tutorial, the link is above.

Paper - Yellow, Dk and Lt Blue CS (Bazzill), textured and plain White Daisy CS (CTMH)
Stamps - Hello Baby (Flourishes)

Accessories - Bakers Twine, Epoxy Bubbles (CTMH)
