This is another card I am going to do for my Chalk technique class. It will be my first class ever, so we will see how it goes. I combined a challenge from Gina K Designs release party that was a brown and pink challenge with the Unscriped sketches challenge.
Here is my card
There was a technique video for demonstrators on Stampin Up that was really good about chalks. I loved one of the techniques they showed. It used the brassy templates for chalk. So I broke out my chalk and pounced on the template. It made really neat images. They I paper pierced around the image and did some faux stiching. It was really a lot of fun!

I added some buttons from Papertrey Ink and there we have it. I might go back and stich around the outside. What do you think?
It's a good life!
