Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsors for this week is Little Blue Button Stamps. 

I used this gorgeous image:
I used the chalk board technique for the sentiment panel.  I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, used a white colored pencil to add the doodles around the corners, and then used some white ink to sponge around the edges to give that chalk look.  I just LOVE how this card turned out; the image is so beautiful and the black really makes everything pop!

Heather, this is gorgeous! I love ---and am pinning the sketch----which you took over the top with your choices of colors and papers. The flowers are gorgeous, and the little chalk swirls in the corner are a great touch.
Have a blessed Easter,

I love how this turned out too. The flowers are really showcased on the blackboard panel. The doodling is so sweet and I will have to remember this detail as it adds so much to the card. Good luck and thanks so much for joining in the fun at the Mod Squad Challenge.
