Chalkboard Birthday card

Just want to say a big thank you to Amy at the Friday Mashup for showing us the chalkboard technique - I'd never seen it before and now I'm hooked.... I've made four cards in the last few days using it!
Needless to say I'm entering it into their weekly challenge:

1. Make a project using the "Chalkboard Technique".
2Or Make a project using " 2 or more Stamp Sets".
3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project using "2 or more Stamp Sets with the Chalkboard Technique".

I've used 2 different stamp sets (the alphabet one and the flowery one)

I heat embossed the flowery stamp onto the back of a cereal packet (homemade chipboard!) in a shimmering red/pink and carefully cut out a few of the flowers that I stuck over the top of the white stamped image.

Am also entering this into CAS-ual Fridays #94: chipboard
