Black-eyed Susan Birthday Card

Today's card is a 6 x 6" square card that I created with a few different techniques. 

 I started by stamping my image in Versamark and then "popping" color of chalk over the Versamark
 I used a vellum, metal rimmed tag and stamped my sentiment onto it.
 Here is a close up of the main Black eyed Susan.
 Once I finished chalking my image, I ran the paper through my embossing folder for a textured look of faux fabric.
 I ran my accent paper through the same embossing folder, embellished the card with ribbon, brads, and a button.

This card is eligible for the following challenges:
