Between a challenge and a pin...

... I got a layout finished.

Scrappyally proposed a challenge in the Studio Calico forum. A lift-the-person-above challenge, where everybody would lift the person that posted ahead of you. I got nik91917 who at the time had only a single layout in her gallery. She kindly added a few more, but then I had my mind up with the first one.

Here's her layout:

What I noticed first in her layout were the title in brackets and the zigzag pattern in  the back. I also liked the layering, but I am rubbish at layering so I decided to leave it.

Zigzags and chevrons are everywhere, but I haven't used them yet, so that was the perfect excuse. I wanted to use a wood patterned paper, and that reminded me of something I had pinned in pinterest:

Put the two inspirations together and you get this:

*Patterned Paper: Farmhouse Collection by Crate Paper
*Mist: Studio Calico
*Fonts: Bebas Neue, VTPortableRemington
*Stickers: Cosmo Cricket
*Also: cardstock, washi tape, Silhouette Cameo

OMG - that is fabulous. Did you handcut the chevrons or is that were your cameo came in? Guess you're contour cutting if it is - never tried it yet ... oh and thanks for the gorgeous card,it really made my day.

Yes, I cut the coloured cardstock with my Silhouette. Thanks for all the sweet comments.
