Chalk Boards

Hi! Thanks for visiting Honeybeelane. PRIZE ALERT through 27 Sept! Make sure you read to the end of this post.

I’m here with a couple of cards that were inspired by Papertrey Ink’s September Blog Hop Challenge.


I love chalk boards and chalkboard art, so I knew that I wanted to play along when I saw the inspiration photo for this month.

Here’s my second card which was also inspired by this week’s Fusion Challenge: Peacock Dynasty.

  1. Really love your cards Melissa! The twine and the chalkboard look wonderful, not to mention the way the colors blend into each other so well on the second one! Thanks for playing along with us over at Seize the Birthday!

  3. Wonderful takes on the chalkboard inspiration. Creating a chalkboard inspired card is still on my to do list. As a matter of fact, I had just finished watching Betsy Veldman’s tutorial when a notification of your new post popped up in my mail box.
