Chalkboard effect card

Hi Everyone, something a little different for me, I wanted to enter a challenge with a chalkboard theme. A simple card but I really like the effect.

The paper was a freebie, I added plain shapes in PS and then used a pattern overlay to add texture. I used a tag shape and "clipped" the chalk paper to it, then added chalk effect images and made the great sentiment from Create with TLC into a chalk effect too. I used embroidery thread that I have had for aeons then printed all out and layered. Quite a few designers help was used on this.

I didn't know what to do with the chalk effect and went for info on the web, I loved this card so used it for inspiration.
