Chalkboard birthday *Inspired By Stamping October release*

Hi there friends. I'm sharing another Inspired by Stamping release project share today. This time it's for the Chalkboard Birthday set

May All Your Wishes Come True card
We were asked to highlight the "chalkboard technique" with our cards today and I decided to see how the technique would look on other colors besides the usual "blackboard" background. I used a lime green paper die cutting it with the Fancy labels die and then using the featured stamp set as my card sentiment. I added some white ink on the edges of the piece to create a more weathered-chalkboard effect. 

I also used the Birthday girl printable papers, ribbon and flowers from Inspired By Stamping.

Make a Wish card
With this project, I did the normal "chalkboard" look using black cardstock and white embossing powder. I added some of the really cool border stamps on the top and bottom of the fancy label cut out. 

Adding ribbon and flowers finished off my card. 

and here's the rest of the hoppers today....
