Spring Chalkboard Love

Today I'm sharing another chalkboard card I created (I'll be posting a mini tutorial on making backgrounds like this on Monday so check back then!).
Thought you don't usually think of black when you think of spring, the addition of an aqua tag, pretty lace, and die cut flower transform this otherwise dark card into something bright and cheery.
Supplies and Tools:
Black/White Cardstock, White Chalk, Labels 4 & 11 Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Floral Fantasy Embossing Folder (Provo Craft), Framelits 3D Drop Ins (Sizzix), Lace, 3D Flower Die (Sizzix), Pearl, Felt, Baker's Twine, Sequins, Washi Tape, Small Circle Punch, Crop-o-dile, Black Sharpie
