*SweetStamps Monthly Challenge

Hello everyone-
It's the 15th of the month and that means it's time for another technique challenge over at SweetStamps.
This months challenge, I LOVE and it's so much fun. 
The theme for this months challenge is:
I had so much fun with my card and love the way it came out as well. 
The image I am using today is called: Chalkboard.  How appropriate for this weeks challenge right?!?!
I had school on the mind, since today was my sons last day!!! I say that with a HUGE sigh of relief too!! :) 
I edged all my patterned paper with antique linen distress ink, before sewing it all down to the Scarlet cardstock.  I love this patterned paper and had tons of scrap, so I decided on creating a block card!! 
Love it!!!  I inked the Chalkboard stamp with SweetStamps white dye ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  I was planning on coloring the little figures, but decided that I loved it, just the way it stands.
