Fancy Post - Chevron pattern

Hi there - Vicki here.  Today I am going to show you how I made my chevron background on my card.  I have been seeing this pattern around blogland, and I just love it!  I know Christmas is over, but I am saving this one for this year to be sent to my nephew who has a similar looking dog (Christmas Emma stamp set).  He will appreciate the adorable hat. :)

I took a red sharpie and did some faux stitching (I can not sew on a machine for the life of me) and little black bling for some added umph.  And again, the finished card:

The papers I used were Echo Park Your's Truly.

I will be using this fun pattern through out the year. I do love this pattern.
See you next time~
