Chalkboard Butterflies

Hello.  Welcome.  A special hi and hello to Sylvia.  So nice to have you join my happy little band.  A big hugz for all my followers and friends.  Hugz.

For this card I have combined card sketch #6 and the chalkboard tutorial from Scrappelyst.

I started with a black card base.  I used white acrylic paint and Stamplorations Flutterby stencil and then smeared Colorbox Alabaster chalk.  I cut Cheery Lynn Mini Rum Punch doily in white and cut them in half to make my banner.  I didn't have any black and white twine so I used my sharpie on a piece of white twine.  The sentiment is from Rubber Dance Something Wonderful set, embossed with white on black card and smeared with the alabaster chalk.  I also added some chalkboard butterflies cut using Cheery Lynn Mini Dimensional Butterflies die.
