I'm so predictable...

I'm back this morning for 2 challenges....colourQ and the Moxie Fab World's Chevron Chic. Guess what I made my chevron pattern with...


Yep- embroidery floss! Am I a one-trick pony or what?!


I first drew the chevron pattern with pencil. To make a point with as little waste of the floss as possible, I made a French knot on the backside so I could come back up through the same hole. Here's what the back looked like before I adhered it to the card (warning- not pretty!):

And the finished card:
