Peachy Keen Challenge #61 With A Twist

Hello everyone!  It's a bright and beautiful almost Autumn day here, and I'm even more in the mood for Halloween than ever.  Our Peachy Keen Challenge for today is a fabulous sketch with a twist to use twine, and of course I went Halloween with it!  I love the size of this card (mine is 4x8), and this one is loaded with bling and sparkle.  For this one, I used the PK-637 Lisa Jean Halloween stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps, and paired it with some purple glitter card stock, and patterned paper from K&Co.  The Square panels were cut with Nestabilities, and if there weren't enough sparkle with the glittery card stock, I went one further, and added some black rhinestones at the corners of the square panel, and some flourishes around it.  You can find these gorgeous flourishes in the Peachy Keen Stamps Store, along with this adorable stamp set.  I just love the flourishes, and find that I can cut them apart and get many uses/cards out of one set.
For full details about this sketch with a twist and the prize that you could win for joining us for this challenge, head over to the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog.  While you're there, be sure to check out the AMAZING cards that the rest of the PKS designers have created.  Oh my goodness, were they EVER creative with this sketch, and I know you're going to love what you see!  Be sure to visit our guest designer, Jane at her Polka Dot Gypsy Blog. Does she ever have some CAH-UUTE scarecrow things for you to oogle!  They are absolutely adorable!!!

Busy, busy day here, but I want to thank you for stopping by, and wish you a blessed day filled with more happy stamping than your heart can hold!  ;-)
