Technique Week

Good Morning! I hope everyone has some wonderful plans this holiday weekend. Filled with peace, and surrounded with family and friends! Oh, and don't forget the chocolate bunnies.
Over at Creative Sketches, we have a great challenge! It's technique week, so that means there is a layout and a technique for you. The layout is super easy to work with, and very versatile. The technique is to use chalks. How wonderful is that! Something soft and pretty to get you in the Easter mood. So, please join us! I can't wait to see what you create.
So, here is my card. As you can tell, I have an infinity for that Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder by Stampin' Up! It gives your card just enough interest without distracting from the focal point. LOVE IT! Ok, I have a secret love for the smooch spray, too! I have a love hate relationship with the Log Cabin smooch. I really love to use it, and then, I wish it was lighter. What can I say. If they made a color that is more like Crumb Cake, I'd be in heaven and you all would be tired of me using it. Hey, I have an idea, maybe I'll make my own. I can post a mini tutorial right here, so you too make create a color you would love to use!
Anyway, back to the card. I love the flower image from the Happiness Shared stamp set. Its one of those perfect coloring flowers. And the stamps from Define Your Life. They are perfect. I added a little seam binding to the top of my stamped piece, to fill in some of the white empty space. And to keep your eye moving, I added a bit of interest in the upper right corner of the card.
Thank you so much for stopping by. As always, your comments really do make my day. Let me know if you have a favorite item you use on many of your paper crafts.
