PKS #25 - Chalk It Up

Hello everyone!  I got to spend almost all day playing with my craft stuff. I've been having a lot of problems with my Cuttlebug.  It just would not cut my dies very well and the embossing was turning out pretty poor.  So, I went to Joann's and bought a Sizzix Big Kick instead.  My dies now cut like a dream!  I was not excited that my Cuttlebug quit working but I was excited that the dies are not the problem.
For my card tonight, the base was cut at 4"x5.5".  The border is an SVG from the Silhouette Store and the turtle is a Peachy Keen SVG.  I colored the cute little turtle with chalk.  I had never tried this before, and was a bit nervous but it was super easy to do. I used cosmetic applicators to brush the color on and once I had finished I sprayed it with hairspray so the chalk wouldn't come off.  To finish him up, I added glossy accents to the eyes and heat embossed my sentiment.
