PEACHY KEEN FACES

Well, 2 of them anyway. lol.
I've followed the Challenge 63 sketch from Peachy Keen Stamps
This is my version of it...

And I'm entering it into two challenges...

First of all, Peachy Keen Challenge 63

Second entry is over at Whoopsi Daisy Challenge (Free and Easy)
http://cutedaisymay.blogspot.com/2011/10/free-and-easy.html

Starting with approx' 8"x8" scalloped card blank...
On spare card and using the Martha Stewart (Inches) scoreboard, I scored diagonally in half inch steps to create a trellis like design (shown to me by my crafty friends) ; ...
This was brayered with Adirondack ink pad.

The top piece of white card was put through the Big Shot with a Sizzix embossing plate (I think it is from their Christmas set)

For the flower heads I used Sizzix Bigz  (Flower Layers-654832) opting for just the smallest layer which is topped with 2 of the small circular Nesties.
Then I used two different  (PK-490) fabulous face stamps (set of 31 faces) from http://www.peachykeenstamps.com/products/PK_490_Everyday_Character_Face_Assortment-171-30.html

Used 2 of the Sizzix (Hello Kitty) Ribbon dies, one with diamond shapes to the middle of the card and then the ric-rac shape for the flower stems.
And to create the leaves I used the Marianne flower die - LR0122, separating the petals to resemble leaves...

Grass at the bottom edge is made with the Martha Stewart (grass) border punch.

Die cut greeting at the top is from the Sizzix 12 die Cardmaking Set

Thanks so much for dropping by :o)
