Peachy Keen Challenge #63

Good morning and happy hellos from Green Bay WI!!! I'm having a wonderful time with my peachy design sisters, Lisa and Viv, and we're adding Janice to the mix today, and I can't wait for that!!! Even with all the fun going on here, we've got to think about challenge day, (Let's face it... THAT'S one of our favorite things) and this is the day for another fabulous sketch and a new challenge with it. Boy, was this image from the new Fall Blessings Acorn stamp set PERFECT for this sketch!
I used some of my stash of PTI patterned paper for this card, and did a little bit of embossing on the horizontal panel behind the image. That is the striped embossing folder from Stampin' Up!. I love that thing, and use it a lot. The image was stamped with Memento tuxedo black in and colored with Copics. Divine twine in chocolate brown finished this card off, and added the final element for the sketch.

You can find this new stamp set and ALL of the new releases at the Peachy Keen Stamps Store, and there are some amazing deals going on the entire month of October. Here's the deal...
