Really Cool Chevron Pattern

I was spending some time in Pinterest today (wow, it's easy to spend too much time there!) and a saw a couple of different cards with a neat Chevron pattern that I just had to figure out. Here's the card I ended up making, I'll explain how to do the chevron's below.

For each row of chevron's I cut 5 pieces of double sided patterned paper at 0.5 inch by 1.5 inch. Then I folded over each end of the strips to make the little triangles. Then you glue the strips down, with the triangles matching up to make the little squares that are not glued down.

All supplies used for this card are from CTMH.  The paper is from a retired paper pack called Roxie that I still have in my stash.  The burlap ribbon is my favourite embellishment from the current catalogue.

I'm entering this card in the Retro Sketches challenge as well as the Simply Create Use your stash challenge and the Moxie Fab World Challenge.  Check out these challenge pages and play along!!!
