 The new challenge from Serendipity is to use chalk! All you need to do is use a Serendipity Stamp (or die) in your design and incorporate chalk!

We love to see your creations
Play along and enter to win!
All the details can be found here

Take a look at all the fabulous "chalky" designs!


I have chosen a chalkboard technique. The fun Butterfly Garden image was stamped with VersaMagic- Cloud White, and embossed with detailed white. 
The image was colored with chalk pencils.
 When the card is closed, the left corner of the framed image is tucked under an embellished die cut with a bow.

When you open the chalkboard flap it reveals the  
"Happy Birthday" stamped message.

Unfold the bottom flap and there is room for a hand written personal note!
