More Chalkboard Love - Unity FWF

Good morning! I have another card today using the chalkboard technique - very similar to the one I shared a couple weeks ago - just a different color scheme! Thought I'd share it for today's Unity FWF!
I also used the color inspiration from this weeks Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - isn't it the most beautiful thing you've ever seen?!?!?!? I'm pretty sure I will be using it to make more card still!


I used some more Glitz Designs papers, and did some distressing with my Tim Holtz distress tool on each layer.
My chalkboard paper is from DCWV, and is a deep teal instead of black. I heat embossed the image from the January KOTM, smudged some white pigment ink around, them stamped it again with the pigment ink. Added some details with a white colored pencil.
Next I stacked up and adhere together all of my many layers of distressed paper. 
Added a couple of rows of lace trim... 
...then finished off with some jute twine and a button before attaching my chalkboard panel down.
I'm pretty sure I will be making many more chalkboard cards in the future! 

I am also linking this up to the Ribbon Carousel Blog Love is in the Air Challenge.
