Make a Wish

Hello Everyone!! Isha here from the Facebook Inspiration Team.
Today I'm sharing a card featuring the chalkboard technique using Prismacolors and some chalk pencils. I've also created my own background using the tiny stamps which we usually overlook. To add some color to the black and white background, I just flicked some firework sprays.

This little monster is so cute, I love it!

Have a great sunday!
