Peachy Keen's Weekly Challenge: Chalk It Up

I loved this Challenge which encouraged me to use chalk 

I recently purchased this retired set (PK-34 Oh! Baby) from Peachy Keen 
knowing that there will be at least one teacher or someone 
in my extended family who will be expecting this year.

The only coloring I did on this card was around the edge of
 the center of the baby's rattle: light & dark aqua  

The idea for this card came from the Melody Ross Die Cut Border.

OK here is the list of the other items I used:
Chalk in Various shades from Stampin' Up 
I used eye make up sponges with the chalk. 
Sentiments - Pink By Design 
Clouds and Birds - Dear Lizzy & American Crafts
 Images stamped with various Tim Holt's Distressing Ink 
& Stampology - Onyx
Ribbon - K&Company 
Flower - GCD Studio
Paper - ATD's My Momenta's Tranquil Hidden Hues

pulled by a plane overhead
