{SS} Monthly Technique Challenge: Chalkboard

Good morning!!
Are you ready for SweetStamps Monthly Technique Challenge?
This months challenge is: 
Chalkboard Technique
I just love this technique!!!  It's super easy, super fun and the results are always AMAZING.
For my card today, I am using You Brighten My Day stamp set.  I used a strip of printer paper to create the gap between the flower, so it was an instant place for the sentiment.  I used SweetStamps White Dye ink  to get the chalkboard effect for the challenge.
I then went around with a white gel pen and created the frame around the image.  Dabbed my finger on the ink pad and rubbed it randomly to added more of the chalkboard effect.  Once completed I added some really small pearls to the four corners and ribbon.
