(2014 c19) ODBD Birthday Chalkboard

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATo make my own designer paper for the background, I sponged Tim Holtz Distress Inks onto a piece of Kraft cardstock.  I then stamped the Birthday Chalkboard by Our Daily Bread  with Versamark and heat embossed with black EP.   (I had to fuss around with a ratty sponge & Versamark to achieve the distressed area around the outside boarder of the  chalkboard)   For the sentiment I used the Faith stampset by Our Daily Bread. I Matted with black and adhered to a piece of the same kraft cardstock.
