Time for another #tooeasytuesday.  I was participating in a challenge on the clean & simple blog.  The layout design was very simple and I wanted to do something a little striking.  I've been using the chevron background stamp a lot lately.  I love the way it bring impact to a card, but isn't overwhelming.  It's great for both masculine and feminine cards.  And it's very 'in' as a pattern in the design world right now.  Starting from there - this is what I came up with.

I decided I wanted to add a little something to the inside of the card too.  I used the masking technique to get the straight line across the bottom of the card - too easy!

Have you been participating in any challenges?  Any more card making challenges out there you can share with me?  Leave a comment and let me know.

Happy crafting.
