Chalkboard Banners

Hi, this is my second post today. This card covers three challenges:  the Friday Mashup which is to use the chalkboard technique or two or more stamp sets; Dynamic Duos which is So Saffron and Basic Black and the Still AddINKtive Spot that Set Challenge, which is either Hearts A Flutter or Secret Garden.  So after that introduction, here's my card:


I white-embossed two banners from Hearts A Flutter and the banner from Affection Collection as well as the Love and always words from Affection Collection.  I drew a border using a white pencil then sponged Whisper White ink onto the black cardstock.  I layered this using dimensionals onto a plain So Saffron card base.  Two white bakers twine bows topped with rhinestones finished off the card.

Thanks for looking.



Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Hearts A Flutter; Affection Collection
Cardstock:  So Saffron; Basic Black
Ink:  Whisper White
Accessories:  white pencil; white bakers twine; basic rhinestones; white EP

Cheers
Karren

Edited to Add:  This card was a Glamette card at Friday Mashup this week.  Thanks guys!
