Make It Monday #16 - Chalk and Stamps with Impression Plates

 I made this card fo rthe Make It Monday #16  from Papertrey. The theme issCombining Chalk and Stamps with Impression Plates. Melissa explaines in a fabulous video how to do that. I causes this great effect and I love how this card turned out.
Papertrey 
 I took that polka dot embossing plate by Papertrey and added chalk in various shades of pink and purple. I then stamped on it with the Dot Spot set. The sentiment is from the Papertrey set Cutting Garden. The die cuts I used fro the sentiment are also by PTI.


I added some Stickles. Not sure why, since the card looked pretty good without it. Here are some more shots to show you the texture of this card better:



I am also submitting this card to the AAA challenge. Of course I had the colors in mind when I chose them for this card. 

   

And lastly this card will join the Snippets Playground - sentiment papers taken from my ever growing snippets pile...
