Yellow Chevron Birthday

It's summer and it definitely feels like it!  We've had a 100-105 degree heat wave over the past week and something a little cooler sounds nice.  Summer means heat but it also means bright, so I chose to make a bright birthday card today!  I used the Tic Tac Toe Challenge over at The Paper Players for my card inspiration--my three in a row were yellow, birthday, and ribbon.

Chevrons seem to be pretty popular lately, so there is no shortage of chevron stamps and accessories.  I started this card with the single Birthday Cake stamp which has a chevron pattern on it.  I mimicked that pattern with my Daffodil Delight card base textured with the Chevron embossing folder.  I added my final chevrons with the new chevron ribbon in black.  The "happy birthday" comes from the Remembering Your Birthday set and I gave it the flag/pennant ends by punching the ends with the hexagon punch.
