Chalkboard Birthday ~ DD44 & FM101

Happy Dynamic Duos Saturday everyone!  It's black tie week again with the duo of So Saffron and Black....ribbon is also the dessert option. 
I decided on two criteria before I made this card.  I would have to use the of-the-moment chalkboard technique and I also had to encorporate the big label die from Appothecary Accents.  It just so happened that while I set that criteria for myself, The Friday Mashup had chosen chalkboard as the challenge for the week!  How lucky! 
I'm calling this my more is more card.  I just couldn't stop myself.  I would add something and think it didn't quite seem finished.  Finally I settled and now that I look at it I wish that I had added a more simple bow or maybe just a tie to the bottom of the die cut.  Oh well.  It is what it is, right!
