Peachy Keen Chalk It Up Card Challenge

Hi Everyone!!  I am sooo super excited to show you this card I made for the Peachy Keen Challenge.  I LOVE this card!!!  

I saw a technique for the sun on Stamp TV on youtube.  This is a video you won't want to miss.  Click HERE for the video.  I used chalk and the applicator that came with the chalk.  Oh my goodness I LOVE how this sun came out.  Now this is my first attemp at this technique.  It is so easy.
 And a fabulous Peachy Keen face!!  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Close t my Heart.
 I used black and white checkered ribbon from my stash.
 Here is a look at my sun in progress.  I did all the way around the paper (4" x 5 1/2").  Then I decided to cut it down and mat it on a card.  After I did all the rays, I went back with the same color and made circular motions in the center for the sun.  The sun and rays were made with the same tool and same color.  This is such a fabulous technique!!

 Here is the Pebbles chalk sets I used.  I used the classic chalk for the sun and used the pearl metallic chalk for the pink checks and a light yellow color accross the entire card for a shimmer affect.
