Trying the Chalkboard Technique

Hello Everyone!
I have a quick post today sharing a card I made for MOJO MondayThe Shabby Tea Room and Simon Says Stamp.   I tend to not be a trend follower, so I had not tried the chalkboard technique.  But after seeing it featured over on the Merry Monday Challenge, I decided to give it a whirl.

 I used this great sketch from Verve's MOJO Monday~

And this inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room~

I was drawn to all of the pattern in this photo as well as the black and kraft colors.
 Simon Says Stamp asked us to use a flourish of some sort on our project.  I used this great bling flourish.
If you are familiar with Verve's stamps, you know that this tag stamp has a snowflake on it.  I masked the snowflake so I would just get the tag shape edge.  I stamped leaves and sentiment from Bloom and Grow on the  now plain tag and embossed everything in white. 
Thanks so much for stopping by-
Have a blessed week!
