Shopping Our Stash ~~ All Bent Out of Shape ~~ Make a Shaped Card

Looking for my Clear it Out Post? scroll down or click HERE.

Wow what a great challenge at Shopping Our Stash ~~ All Bent Out of Shape, all we want you to do is make a shaped card, this will get your brain and fingers moving. My brain was working as I rarely make shaped cards with the exception of "teepee" cards they are quick, easy and so cute but I wanted something different so here is what I made for the shaped challenge.

I made a chalkboard easel card, I used the Hardwood background stamp from Stampin'up and a
Big Day from 2015 Sale-a-Bration promotion (first time using it) 

Close up of the sentiments

This is the back of the chalkboard as you see I used all the stamps from the set. woohoo. Inks I used were White stazon, versafine sepia, memento tuxedo black, card stock Crumb Cake.

I would like to enter this in:

Thanks for visiting today, head over to the SOS blog check out the rules and see what the rest of the design team have "shaped" up for inspiration.

Hello Barbara and thank you for the sweet comment you left on my blog about my camper card.
Now, I've never made a chalk board card, I have some paper a friend gave me but I haven't use it at all. Your card is wonderful, love the woodgrain background and your easel style card, thank you for sharing.
