Peachy Keen Challenge #36

Good morning!  How about a great Challenge today?  Well, we've got one for you over at the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog, and if you play along, you're gonna LOVE what you could win!  How about a set of Copic Spica Glitter Pens and a Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.  Oh my goodness!  I have one set of those glitter pens, and they are awesome!!!  All you have to do to get your name in for a chance to win, is play along with the fabulous sketch/color challenge created by our talented DT Coordinator Angelica!  She keeps us on our toes with these great combos, which is what it's all about.  It IS a challenge, afterall!  Here's the sketch for challenge #36, and the color combo is just as pictured.  Daffodil, melon, and cobalt blue, but feel free to use that combo in any way you'd like.
For my challenge card, I used the adorable PK-601 Bewitched stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps.  She's such a cute little witch, and she worked out great with this color combo.  The boo-ti-ful sentiment comes from the new Nikkity Knack Cat Gang stamp set (PK-630), and I just left out the "You are" part of it because I didn't have room for it with using my word window punch.   Now when I look at this, I wish I would have added the little spider from that same set coming down the right side from the punched webs.  I am so going back and adding that in!!  :-)  I used my "go to" favorite K&Co. paper for this card.  It's from a package of their Halloween specialty paper from last year, and the card stock is all from Stampin' Up!.  As I mentioned, I used my SU punches for the sentiment, and my Martha Stewart punches for the web.  I added the daffodil colored ribbon from Stampin' Up!, and a button to finish this one off.  Gosh, am I ever having fun with Halloween cards this year, and I have so many more cards and projects that I still want to do, so I'd better get with it!
Please remember to stop by the rest of our talented designers blogs for some really amazing and inspirational creations.  You can find links to all their blogs in my sidebar.  They are such a talented group, and I know you're just gonna love what they've done for this challenge.  Oh, and have you heard the news?  There's a whole new challenge coming to Peachy Keen, along with a new design team to go with it!  Yes, you heard me right!!  While you're at the challenge blog, be sure to read up on the new Face It Friday Challenge, and meet the new Face It Friday Design Team.   It's gonna be sooooo much fun, and I hope to see you there!!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I wish you a glorious day and lots of happy stamping!

Love ya,

Yeah, what Viv said! You're a wizard {well i think sorceress is a lady wizard, so you're that} ☺ Your coloring makes me want to build a tiny fire and set my prismacolors and OMS ablaze!!! heehee...but I won't because I don't want to have to start selling my blood at plasma centers to be able to afford another COSTLY addiction {if i could just stop buying every friggin cricut cartridge that comes out...i'd be ok} But I digress, sigh, your card kicks all whole lotta arse as usual! ☺ ☺ ☺
