Chalkboard Effect!

This card is even prettier in person!  Making this card made me happy; I think because it is so springish! 
The chalkboard effect is quite popular right now.  You take a piece of basic black card stock and smear the background with White ink.  I just take a little bit of a sponge get some white ink and rub it on the card stock.  Then stamp with whatever image you want, here I used Vintage Verses, free with Sale-a-bration, only 14 more days to get your free products!!  I then used my white gel pen around the outside edges, you wouldn't need to do this but it does add to the card!
I don't always do something for the inside of the card but this card demanded something!
