Peachy Challenge 32::Sketch::August 2012

Here is my entry for the Peachy Keen Challenge 32 - Sketch Challenge
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Peachy Keen Stamps and thought there's no way I could make a card for a PKS Challenge and not include a PKS image!  So, having just recently figured out how to use the PKKO dies and co-ordinating stamps, I knew I had to create a card featuring Santa Tree!  And here it is!
The colour scheme I have used for Santa Tree is inspired by a young friend of mine, Master Harry (7) who coloured in a Santa Tree for me one day when he was at my house.  I have modified it (I didn't think the blue tree trunk really gave it a Christmassy Feel), but other than that it is pretty much what Harry created.  I just got to use the Copics and Stickles, that's all!

I have cut a piece of patterned paper (Kaisercraft Be Merry Collection) and inked the edges with green.  I have then put a 2" band of gold wire-edged ribbon across the bottom of the patterned paper.  This has then been adhered to the front of a plain white card 3.25" x 5.5".  Santa Tree has then been placed over the top and I made a label using a My Favourite Things die and stamped the sentiment from the PKS Decorate Me Christmas Tree Stamp Set.  I then hand-drew some holly berries on the tag and highlighted with more Stickles.  I hope you like it!  




Love your Christmas tree and that face! AWESOME! AWESOME! Thanks for playing along with us at PKS! Hugs, Leanne

Hi Deb, your card is so sweet! I love the colors on the tree! It's wonderful to hear of a little one so enthusiastic about crafting and then inspiring us! I love that little tree on your card so much I might have to just get that stamp too!
