Distress inks and chalkboard effect

Hello everyone, a new week is here, already the first week of the month is gone. Its cold and wet here, that's how our winters are mostly, I am really hoping to see the blue skies though.

Sharing a card which I made week.
I started off with a white base, and then used the vintage photo distress ink to ink the wood grain stencil on the card front, and after that, I inked up the embossing folder of the trees with forest moss and sprayed with mist and presses my card  against it get the background. Then I went o with few yellow, orange and red inks to distress the edges. I decided to add the sentiment on a black textured card stock, I had heat embossed in white color, and went for  a bit messy chalkboard look. Adhered it with foam tape, and done. This is very different from my usual CAS cards. I hope its worth the efforts.

Linking this card with:
