Chalkboard Technique

I am loving the Chalkboard Technique that is so popular now.  I have had a little play with some of the images I have....seems it works with so many different styles.

I have used the JustRite® Stampers Botanical Butterflies clear stamps and Kindness Cling stamp set.  I love the way the Kindness Frame coordinates with the SpellbindersLabels Twenty Nestabilities®.

Adding a couple of sentiments from a Stampin' Up! set that I have had for a long time and just love the font - takes me right back to the Classroom on this card.

I could not help but add a lace flower and button, giving it a shabby look - the flower is from a piece of lace, I sat for quite some time cutting out each flower, but it is so worth every minute!! 

This card is for the following challenges:
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Black and White 
Little Claire's  -  Love & Romance

 Raise The Bar Free at last, anything goes
