Peachy Keen Challenge #47 (With A Twist)


Good morning and welcome to my second post for today, which just happens to be a card, sharing the Peachy Keen Challenge #47.  For this challenge, we have this teriffic sketch to follow and a bit of a twist to add.  What is  the twist you might ask?  Well, the twist is to "Think Bling".  Not too much of a stretch for me, because I LOVE me some blingage!!!
I made this card with the PK-229 Funny Flowers stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps.  The paper is a bargain bin find from my LSS, but there's no info about who makes it.  I just thought it was pretty and would make a great spring/summer layout or card, and I think I was right!!  ;-)  LOL!!!  Now for the bling, have you checked out the Peachy Keen Stamps Store lately, because there's a whole lotta bling going on over there.  The pearls around the circle are from the store.  The actually had a rhinestone in each curve, but I cut those off and will use them for something else.  The pearl embellishments on the frog card in the post below are also something new from the PKS Store.  This sweet little flower was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and colored with my Copic markers.  I finished this card off with a bit of Wild Wasabi ribbon from Stampin' Up!.  Oh, how I miss Wild Wasabi!  It was one of my favorites!!!!

Now it's time to head over to the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog to see what the rest of our awesome designers have in store for you.  This week we have the very talented Tiffany Degough designing with us.  Please drop by all their blogs and leave them some well deserved love for all their wonderful works of art!!!  I sure hope you get the chance to play along with our challenge, because one lucky winner will receive the adorable PK-265 Bunny Dolls stamp set for playing along.  It's always so much fun to see what you're doing with your PKS stamps!!!!

I'm so glad you could drop by today!  I hope you're enjoying a bright and beautiful day, and I hope you have some happy stamping planned!
