Merry Monday # 86 Chalkboard Technique

This week the challenge is to use the Chalkboard Technique.
I pulled out PTI Happiest of Holidays and embossed it.
I also embossed the top and bottom borders from Boutique Borders: Sympathy.
Added some paper from MME: Merry Little Christmas
and some holly in the corners from Holly Jolly.
I also used a dauber and added some white pigment ink to the edges.
I hope you will go HERE  and be inspired to join in the fun.
 
Have a great weekend!
Heart Hugs,
Colleen

  10. Normally I'm not really thrilled by this technique, but now that I see your card with it I am! You did it beautifully, the white text stands out very pretty and the bright colors of the background and holly really complement the black!
