Congrats and Fusion Card Challenge #15



Today it is my turn to share a card on the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog. I created a personalized congratulations card. By using sentiments and images from You Said It Sister and The Envelope Please I created a faux subway art card using the chalkboard technique on chocolate.  This is a fantastic way to combine sentiments from several sets to create a completely customized card.



 


Hope that I have inspired you to try this customizing technique, have a great day!
I am also submitting this card to this week's Fusion Card Challenge #15!

Such a fun piece of subway art you created. And, why do I buy those stamps when you make it look so easy to do it myself. I really love the wood pattern paper you used as your backdrop.
