Hi there friends! I've got another valentine card to share. I had to try the Chalkboard Technique that many crafters are trying. This is my take on it. Gosh, it doesn't look this blurry at home!
I used my new Flourishes "Just my Type" stamp set that I won in January which has great text for this technique. 
As you can see it's quite simple because I'm considering giving it to my hubby. The Carta Bella-Devoted paper does the work on this card. The image is just a rectangle with trimmed corners cut with the cloud crop-a-dile tool. I used a pin and design paper to make the fish tale element from the sketch and left off the circle element to keep it simple. A hearts Cuttlebug embossing folder was used on the background. 
Thanks for visiting and I'll be back tomorrow with one more Valentine. Have a sweet day! Kim :)
