Peachy Keen Challenge #64

Good morning!  Hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday!  It's time for another Peachy Keen Challenge, and once again, we've got a terrific sketch for ya.  There were so many wonderful entries in our last challenge, and I sure hope to see even MORE this time!!!  For my card today, I used the new PK-648 Faceless Scarecrow Dolls stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps, as well as the PK-649 Scarecrow Accessories.  WOW!  What a great combination of sets to create with!!  I just LOVE these stamps!!  So, here's my card.

I was inspired to paper piece this scarecrow after I saw Kim Score's adorable creation that you can view here.  I'm tellin' ya, that Kim is one creative lady, and I absolutely love everything she does!!!!  Thanks so much for the inspiration, Kim!!! 
The paper I used for this card is all from Stampin' Up!  The card stock AND patterned paper can both be found there, as well as the waffle weave ribbon, the brads and buttons.  I used lots of foam dimensionals for this card, and the background for the scarecrow girl was cut with the Nestabilities Labels 21 die.  To get the matte layer, I simply traced around the edge of the die directly onto my card stock, and then cut it out by hand.

Here's a closer look at this cutie.  The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers.  I even colored the patterned paper to add some shading.  That is a great trick, and really adds a lot of depth to the finished project.  Below, you can find all the details about this challenge, and don't forget to drop by the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog to see what all the DT gals have created using this sketch.  Great things await you!!!
