Peachy Keen Challenge - Anything Goes and Playdate Cafe

(((If you happen to be looking for my New Years Giveaway of the Unity set Snowflake Kisses, click HERE or just scroll down. It is open for a few more days!)))

Hello! I was excited to see the first challenge at Peachy Keen stamps posted this morning - and even more excited to see that it was an Anything Goes Challenge! Here is what I made:
I had been thinking of this sweet little cherub with the color inspiration for this weeks Play Date Cafe Challenge already - so it was a perfect opportunity to sit down and make it! 


As I sit and look at it, I'm realizing that my orange is a little on the soft side, but it's still orange, right?
So I started off with the cute little cherub from last years Peachy Keen January kit - so fun to be able to pull this out again! I colored her with Copics, then cut her out by hand.  
Next, I added some Glossy Accents to her wings and Halo, and sprinkled on some tinsel glitter. Finally, I added some plain Glossy Accents to her eyes and lips - it is hard to see in the pic - but it makes her look so sweet in person!
I layered several pieces of paper - I know the script paper is DCWV, otherwise, they were some of my random clearance papers, so not sure what they are. I distressed all the edges with my Tim Holtz distress tool before stacking them together, also tucking a doily behind one of the layers.
I stamped my sentiment, paper pieced the heart, and added Glossy Accents and tinsel glitter to that as well.
Attached my sweet cherub with foam adhesive, wrapped around some jute twine and tied it in a soft bow. Finished off with some bling underneath.
Thanks for stopping by! I hear the new release party for Peachy Keen is tomorrow night at 6:00 PM Central Time on the Peachy Keen Connection! From the sneaks I've been seeing - you're not going to want to miss it!
