"Thanks" card using chalk...

Hey everyone!!!
I hope your having a great week so far. We had a Dr. appointment for the baby yesterday and all is well.. woohoo!!! :) Just 6 more weeks till this little guy is done baking!! :) Woohoo!!!! I am so ready!

This is the card that I did for Practical Scrappers this week. Our challenge was to use chalk/ink this week. Chalk is something that I haven't played with a lot but really love how it looks, the soft look it has. For this card I used my Alphacolor Square Pastels (chalk crayons). I've had this set for a long time just haven't used it on my cards before. I used three colors blue, green and yellow. I started of with a 2 1/2 by 3 3/4 peace of white card stock and simple added little at a time some chalk with a sponge. That gave me a back ground for the flowers. I also added some brown chalk around the edges of the blue printed paper.

Several different cardstock.
ColorBox "Rose Coral" and "Maroon" chalk.
Pamass Pigment Ink pad "Green".
CTMH "Happiness" stamp set.
CMTH "For Every Occasion" stamp set.
Martha Stewart yellow ribbon.
