Christmas Chalkboard

Hi, and HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the Dads out there!!

I'm here tonight to share with you the newest technique challenge from Technique Time Tuesday......
Mynnette has produced another fabulous tutorial for you. I must admit, at first I was a little intimidated by this challenge; but once I started, it was surprisingly easy. I don't know what I was afraid of?!? I think my card turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself :)
