ColourQ #176, Inkspirational #7

Took a little time to make a card today....

The current color challenge over at ColourQ:

Plus this challenge from Inkspirational:

Equals this card from me:

Supply List:
Stampin' Up! - Cardstock (Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Basic Black); Patterned Paper (flower, polka dot); Rub - On; Linen Thread
American Crafts (Dear Lizzy - Neapolitan) - Patterned Paper (stripe)
Spellbinders - die
Cuttlebug - Embossing Folder (Cane Back Chair)
Ek Success - Border Punch

I've been really diggin' on all of the chalkboard elements that I've been seeing lately. So, I decided to try and see if I could get a chalkboard-y type of look on a card.  I used a Spellbinders die on some black cardstock, and just rubbed some white chalk over the center.  I erased some of it from the very middle, and applied a white rub on for the sentiment. Not nearly as gorgeous as the things I've been seeing everywhere else, but, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out :)
I realized I'm a day late for 'love' themed projects...but, I just didn't have time to get it done yesterday. At least I have a card ready for next year...

Thanks for looking!

Pin It!

Stunning card, I love your background embossed card stock and I actually have not been a fan of this chalk board look but really like how you have incorporated it into your card- subtle and I like it! So I think it is better than most I have seen using it!
Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational.

Beautiful card! I really like your color choice and how you layered all of the elements. The string holding down the sentiment piece is great! So glad you joined us at Inkspirational!
