Artful Delight: Thanks for being there.



Hello!

Wednesday's are my Artful Delight Card kit post days.

Here's a clean and simple card:



I'm still pretty smitten by the whole chalkboard trend.  I really love the chalkboard elements that are included in the November kit.  Check out the non-traditional floral chalkboard-y paper.  I teamed it up with the Licorice Twist Bazzill for the base.  I used a dry baby wipe and swiped white ink from my Wplus9 pad onto it.

I used a vellum belly band (from my stash) to stamp the

Thanks
for being there 


I used Fresh Ink Birch. 

If you were my vellum adhesive, where would YOU be hiding?  Pretty sure it is with my embossing buddy....so I used my good 'ole stapler to adhere the vellum.

I really like the look of this 

calm & quiet card.

Check out all the goodness in the Artful Delight November Card kit:


Isn't it AWESOME?

My card was inspired by the current retro sketch:



I'd love for you to stop by the Artful Delight blog and leave me some bloggie love!
