Banner Blast and Sassy Salutations

Hola Amigas! It's a rainy day here in Jersey. Today I decided to play with both Stampin' Royalty Challenge #209 and the Paper Players Challenge #177. The Royalty theme is birthdays and the Paper Players theme is projects using the Chalkboard Technique. This is my first time using the Chalkboard Technique and it was fun. To make my chalkboard I used the woodgrain embossing folder and then rubbed Soft Suede on the embossed lines. Love that effect.
Recipe: Stampin' UP
Paper: Basic Black, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Ink: Summer Starfruit, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White Craft, Soft Suede
Stamp: Sassy Salutations, Banner Blast
Ribbon: Pool Party Twine (SAB 2014 Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack)
Punch: Banner
Accessories: Big Shot, Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Clear Embossing Powder

Today wasnt too bad but boy am I shivering...
Have you played with the LNS Challenge Team.
