Whimsy Inspiration - Chalkboards 2

Hi Everyone!
I have some more Whimsy inspiration to share with you today!

For this card I again inked up the 'Chalkboards 2' sentiment set by SC Designs, available at the Whimsy Stamps store. Love this set!


This card is fairly similar to one I made a couple of weeks ago, but I thought it was worth showing how fab this set is for adapting to different people and occasions. This time I needed a Birthday card,  so I stamped the birthday sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Ink. I cut it out with Nestabilities Labels 8, and sponged around the edge with Distress Ink 'Frayed Burlap'.

 

I framed this with the matching Nestabilities Decorative Labels 8, and added it to my card made with My Mind's Eye - 'Hattie' 6x6 papers. (I've been hoarding these for AGES!!)


To finish I added a triple twine bow, some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, and pearls.

Hope you like it!
