Chalkboard Love

This card is kinda a mistake. I wasn't sure what I wanted but I know I wanted the white stamped word LOVE to be more vibrant. I guess I didn't ink up the stamp well enough or it was too dry for the embossing powder to stick to. But after I finished it, I liked it because it looked like a chalk board. The pink piece running along the bottom had the words love over and over and I used Stickles on it to make it stand out. I then placed the Prima flowers along what I thought would be the ledge of the chalk board.

The over sized eyelets are those that came with the Crop-i-dile. Now if you don't have one of these, you are really missing out because you don't make a sound using one! I craft at 2 or 3 AM and I am not allowed to make noise as hubby is up at 4 for work. I only went thru the top layer and then threaded thru my two tones pink ribbon and tied it in what I think is a decent bow. All of this was layered on a simple piece of pink card stock. If I had wanted a bit more shimmer, I would have used that new Bling from Bazzill but this worked nicely. I just love how pink and black go so well together. I need to fix the tip on my Stickles bottle tho because it's bent and too much is coming out when I squeeze.

This card would be nice for any time you want to say something nice to someone. It was fast and easy and all made with scraps from my paper bins.
