287- Daisy Chalkboard Suspension Card

I am really enjoying playing with my chalks- I really wasn't using them enough. I wanted to use them to make this suspension card- I have never made one with such a large movable centre and wasn't sure if it would work. I am really happy with the finished product though- I think it's quite pretty.

The chalkboard technique is the best way to use chalks on dark cardstock. You stamp with craft ink then you can sponge the chalks on top. It really makes the colours pop.

As for the suspension part I used dental floss and sticky strip.
