Sketchy Chevrons for Friday Mashup

Happy Friday! How many folks have a candy hangover? I know I sure do! We don't get a lot of kids where I live so I always make sure to buy plenty of candy that we just "happen" to have left over, hehehehe :)

Today's Friday Mashup is brought to us by Holly, and she is all about a sketch that incorporates chevrons. Some of you with a keen eye may recognize this as a layout from a card in the holiday mini. Because I'm not a fan of chevrons(I'm really trying to ignore the whole chevron craze) and because the sketch stumped me I went simple and CASE'd the card from the catalog. I changed up a few things, such as the card base, glitter, coloring in the image and the use of a banner in the top right corner.

This is also the first challenge with all of our new design team members so I hope you'll come by the Friday Mashup blog, check out their creations and play along!

I'm also entering this card over at Merry Monday, as the challenge there this week is all about Santa! I love Santa, he is one of my favorite things about Christmas!
