Stampin' Up! Chalks make striking Thank You Cards

Hi all! Sorry I've been fairly quiet on the blog front, I've had a fairly crazy, hectic week, with a bit of fun thrown in to the mix!
I made this card in a series for my house mates mum as a Thankyou gift for her help.
I made 8 of these babies, using different colours, and different stamps, but silly me, only photographed one of them... These stamps are from the retired set Artfully Asian, which was actually the first stamp set I bought through Stampin' Up!, back in 2006. The chalking was done using a cut out mask, which was taped down, and some cotton balls. I clear embossed the leaf image first, so the chalk wouldn't cover it, or smudge it. I love how clean and simple this card came out. 
I am entering this into the SUO Challenge, which was to use your retired stamps.
Thanks for looking, and Happy Stamping.
I'll be back later with some cards made on my epic craft day with fellow demonstrator, and friend Kim
