I have finally got on the chalkboard  bandwagon!
....been wanting to give it a try like forever, but needed a Betsy tutorial to help me get going!
..yes... Betsy Veldman from Paper, Scissors and Superheroes has so very kindly shared a brilliant tutorial on her blog and I just had to give this technique a try.

Here is my take on the technique. in fact I made quite a few cards, but have not been able o photograph them, so for today it's just this one!

 Sharing with Papertrey Ink MIM#94-Detail Glitter Technique

and 10 min Craft Dash

 I have always wanted to time myself as I create and this challenge gave me that perfect opportunity!. I got this card done in 9 min 22 seconds. It was pretty straightforward  though, just a whole lot of stamping in white and some embossing. the red strip was a scrap piece that I had leftover from another project.A tiny bit of glitter on the tree and I was done.

  1. This card is amazing! Betsy is inspiring, isn't she? Love how the "chalkboard" look is making appearances on cards- it's so fun! I'm in awe that this took less than 10 Minutes to make....
