PKS Challenge #29 & A Recipe Challenge

Good morning!  Well, today I'm combining my challenge for The Recipe Challenge Blog with the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog.  You see, our PKS challenge is a recipe for a picnic, and The Recipe Challenge Blog is challenging us to do salads.  I combined the two with my favorite picnic salad, which is old fashoined potato salad.  For this card, I cut 1/2 inch strips of paper, and wove the checked table cloth background.  For stamps, I thought pretty seriously about using my Faceless Veggie stamps from Peachy Keen, and utilizing that adorable tater, but I just couldn't get past the idea of picnics and those checked table cloths, and lots of happy flowers around, so I went with my PKS Funny Flowers, and the Faceless Petal Daisy Flowers for the border.  I stamped the daisy petals in So Saffron, then stamped the outline of the daisy in red.  The little Funny Flower with those cute ladybugs was colored with Copics, and highlighted with a white gel pen.  I used some Spring Flower Soft from Scrapbook Store At Your Door for the centers of all the border flowers.  I had been hoarding that stuff since Julie sent it to me, for something special, and it was definitely worth the wait.  That is some fun stuff to work with!  I LOVE the texture and dimension it adds!!!!  This card was finished with some Dew Drops down the side, and is now ready for display on my recipe stand.

Be sure to check out all of the wonderful recipe cards of both The Recipe Challenge Design Team, and our Peachy Keen Stamps Design Team.  There is some tremendous talent among our designers, and I promise you will have yummy recipes galore to oogle!!!!!  On another note, you have just GOT to follow this link to see what our fearless leader, Kathy has been up to, and you'll see what I mean about those adorable Faceless Veggie stamps.  They are just so stinkin' CUTE!!  Also, be sure to check out the new look to the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog, because it's wonderfully awesome, and such a fun place to visit!!  I'm thrilled you could stop by today.  May you have a beautiful day filled with LOTS of happy stamping!

Love ya,
