A blackboard look

The blackboard look is popular today in basically everything and I love it.
 It is a fun look on a card so I used the inspiration photo at the Fusion challenge to help me create my card. The verse is from a set of stamps from PaperTrey, Inc.  I stamped it in white, embossed it in white and then added some Black Soot Distress Stain.  The embossed design acts as a resist to the ink resulting in a blackboard look.  Mixing that in with lots of pink accents just seemed like the right thing to do. 
 I added a line of sticky adhesive across my card and applied some wrinkled ribbon to that. The little bunch of flowers is from a little set by American Crafts and of course some fun sequins helps finish off my card. A card that is sure to be an encouragement for a friend. 
Here is the Fusion challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
