Just Us Girls #214 - Technique Challenge

I made a card for the technique challenge at Just Us Girls blog to create a background of words.
I used Technique Tuesday's Jingle All The Way stamp set to create the chalkboard background.  I inked up the sentiments with Versamark ink while they were still on plastic liner and stamped them on Basic Black CS and embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I sponged some white ink around to make it look like a chalkboard.  I mounted it to an Always Artichoke CS mat and then to a Whisper White CS base.  The Sahara Sand tag was cut with Verve's Tagged Rectangle die.  The poinsettia was made with Spellbinder's dies. I inked the veins with Crumb Cake ink and added some pearls to the center, and mounted it with foam dimensionals.  The tag was added to the card with foam dimensionals also.
Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comments.
Happy Stamping,
