Paper pieced chevrons

Today's challenge over at 365 Cards is to use a stamped image and fussy cut and paper piece it.

I started with my chevron background stamp and stamped it onto black, grey and aqua papers before snipping along all those zig zags and carefully glueing them onto a piece of white card.

The flower is from a Stampin' Up set (Pick a Petal).  I stamped so many of these petals onto all different colours of paper and cut them up in different ways, I just couldn't choose which method worked best, so in the end settled for two different types!

I had intended to cut the flower so it was level with the edge of the card but kind of liked it going off the edge.  It may be a different story when I can't find an envelope that it fits in  :-)

I'm entering this into
Runway Inspired Challenge #45  (I love the black and white stripes and the splash of bright rainbow on one side)
