One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Merry Monday ~ Chalkboard challenge!

Kristie selected the chalkboard technique for this challenge over at Merry Monday.
I like this technique and hope you do too!
Please play along with us and go check out the cards by the design team!
I used a piece of PTI Smokey Shadow paper for my chalkboard.
I white embossed the images and sentiments and then colored in with some prisma
colored pencils.  The red dots are from a hole punch.
After it was all done, I sponged on some HA Unicorn white pigment ink around the edges and the images.

stamps: PTI Rustic Wreath, Joyful Christmas for sentiment
