CAS(E) This Sketch Chevrons!

Hello!  Happy Tuesday!  
I hope you're having a great week!  It was a beautiful sunny day here in Burlington today.  The snow is melting and for that I am truly thankful!  I totally am looking forward to spring!  I can't wait for the rest of the snow to melt!  We are supposed to get some rain tomorrow so hopefully that will take care of a good chunk of the rest of it!!

I really liked this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge!  At first I didn't know what I would do with the sketch but then I realized that I could use chevrons....again!  I'm so sorry about all of the chevrons but at least it appears I'm over my neutrals kick (until you see one of the cards I made for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge!).

So, as you may realize, the chevron embossing folder from Stampin' Up actually has the chevrons going the other way (it is designed to have the chevrons emboss side to side landscape no portrait).  It was actually quite easy to just turn the folder the other way and run it through the Big Shot twice to get the entire piece of cardstock embossed!  It left a little line on the cardstock but I covered most of it with the banners and from the picture you can't really see it anymore!  If this is completely confusing to you, I apologize!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Costal Cabana, Basic Black
DSP: Fresh Prints DSP Paper Stack (I LOVE THIS PAPER!!!!)
Stamps: Birthday Bash Sentiments (PTI)
Ink: Black
Other: Chevrons Embossing Folder, Banners Framelits Dies, Word Bubbles Framelits, Dimensionals

Hope you have a great day!  There's another post coming right up!
