Jessie's birthday card

I made this card for my friend and co-worker Jessie for her birthday.  I used two Creative Crew challenges as inspiration.  One of this month's challenges is to use one of the retiring in colors.  I chose my favorite, Wisteria Wonder.  The other challenge is to use paper piercing in a new way.  I pierced at the corners and used the holes to make the stitches with Wisteria Wonder bakers twine.
I also tried a new technique for me: chalkboard.  I started with a piece of black cardstock.  I used my embossing buddy to give it a chalky look.  Then I stamped all of my images (all from Best of Birthdays) in white craft ink so they would look like they were drawn with chalk.
Happy stamping!
