GIU Day 5: chalkboard love.

So whilst browsing Pinterest a week or so ago, I stumbled upon a pin by Betsy (Go-To Gal Paper Crafts Magazine) with an awesome tutorial for the chalkboard technique. LOVE it! Her tutorial is fabulous. I thought I would try my hand on it, and love the way it turned out! Can't wait to do more of this.
For this card all the stamps are from the current Unity Kit of the Month - LOVE! I love being a KOTM member. The stamps you get every month are FABULOUS and Angela spends so much time making sure the kit is just rock star each and every month. Plus all the discounts and bonuses you get along the way.

I hope you have a fabulous Sunday. {Isn't there some big game on today or something? ;)}

I love your card! I haven't tried the chalkboard technique yet but I have seen several tutorials on it. Looks great!
I did hear something about a game also, but I am heading to my local Ben Franklin Crafts store where they're having a sale!
