It's that time of the week for a new challenge over at Peachy Keen!!! This week, we want you card makers to show us your skills!!! Make a card with a friendship theme, and make sure to use those Peachy Keen stamps for a chance to win Top Peach for the week and bring home a peachy prize!!! Here is my card for this weeks challenge:
I was so excited when I saw the challenge for this week - because cards are what I like to do best! So I pulled out my poor old dusty Cricut again (poor thing has been neglected lately!) and my Country Life cartridge, along with my Peachy faces, and whipped out these cute cherries!
I added some cute faces using Peachy Keen's In Stitches Face Assortment.
I embossed the kraft paper with my Cuttlebug, leaving the top part smooth to place my sentiment. The sentiment is a rub on from October Afternoon (I think it is an older set) that I got in one of their Santa Sacks last December. I added some sheer green polka dot ribbon across the seam between the embossed and not embossed paper, then wrapped a little Papertrey Ink button twine around and tied a bow with a Papertrey Ink button.
I used a Copic marker to make the blushing cheeks on the cherries, then used my white gel pen to add freckles and color in the mouths and noses.
I also inked the edges of everything with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen, and used Walnut Stain for the card base to make it a little darker.
Finished off with a thin black mat, some faux stitching on the cherries, and pop-dotted the cherries from the background!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you'll join us in this weeks challenge! Can't wait to see what you create!!!
