It's hard to go wrong with Chevrons... their popularity seems to still be going strong... they are still being seen everywhere!
On this second card the background paper was a design that was clearly designed for scrapbook pages. The navy blue tree/mountain graphic spread across the bottom of the page so I simply cut each corner to ultimately create two cards. Since the image on the right side was a mirror image of the one you see here I simply swapped the position of the sentiment and brads to the left side.
In both cases the card designs are quite simple but with enough attention and detail to pull them together, which is often even less then you would think if you start with a good pattern and let the paper do the work.
P.S. These Sentiments came in the same small cling stamp set that I picked up long ago at my Michael's. I think it was made by Hampton Arts.
