Chalk Ah Lot

My card today is very simple but out of 14 cards my husband picked it as his favorite. It is for the Chalk Ah Lot challenge Christmas with chalk.


I used Glitsy powdered chalk, a silver metallic color, from our sponsor Stamp N Plus to highlight a few of the embossed snowflakes. When I combine the powdered chalk with paint it makes a great medium to paint with. 


The Season's Greetings sentiment stamp is by Stamp N Plus and stamped in Hero Art black inkThe embossing folder is by Darice and the red paper is from Hobby Lobby that I used a EK Success border punch on it. The other border is from a border swap I did on another site so I'm not sure who it is by. That's all there is to it. Pretty simple but just the way he likes them-whatever:)

Thanks for stopping by.
