Less Is More - Frame It!

Good morning!
Quick post to get to work, and this card took slightly longer to make than I thought it would!

So this morning, Chrissie and Jen over at Less Is More have chosen a theme of


Here is my card...

The reason this took longer than planned is because I have never tried the 'chalkboard' technique before, and for some unknown reason, I thought now would be a good time lol! All because there was a piece of black card on my desk this morning!

The stamp is from the Sale-A-Bration Vintage Verses freebie, stamped in Whisper White. I drew the frame around the card with a watercolour pencil, and finished with some Pool Party Baker's Twine and a tiny pearl, not that either are showing up very well.

Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamp - Vintage Verses (SAB)
Ink - Whisper White
Other - Baker's Twine
