Thank You card!

Today I am sharing a thank you card that has rainbow colors (hope you are not tired of it!) , partial use of the chevron stamp (called Zig Zag)....and a great sentiment from this set Big Ticket. Ta-da! 
FRIEND
It is a fun card to make! Have you been overwhelmed by the large background stamp? This is one easy way to use it! Emboss Resist and then cut it up....and now you see what happens! I am linking this up to Moxie Fab World's Thank you card Challenge while I am at it. 

I will be back tomorrow with "How I Stretch My Stamps" series #2
See you then!

Love your treatment of the chevron stamp, Virginia! I've just bought a set of chevron stamps, so I shall use your technique. Great inspiration, as always.

This is a great idea! Chevrons are oh so popular. When I first looked at your card I didn't even realize it was the background stamp. And I would NEVER get tired of the rainbow colors. Your cards always make me smile :)

I'm a sucker for chevrons- what a gorgeous card and a great reminder to 'dismantle' your stamps so to speak!! Gorgeous Fun card - and no, the rainbow theme is not getting old!!
