Paper Crafter's Library's Guest Feature!

 Today I am excited to share my guest design work over Paper Crafter's Library.
When I got the invite from Andrea to share my work, I wasn't sure what exactly I can share...I mean, I felt so inadequate and know so little still. However, with the chalkboard effect as one of the popular trends in paper-crafting,  I think might be alright to share my three cards with chalkboard effect.
