Peachy Sweet


Good morning and happy Saturday to you! And if you are in the U. S., I hope your holiday weekend is off to a great start as we prepare to celebrate our country's birthday.

This week at Our Creative Corner we have a sketch challenge for you. I flipped it and took some liberties with the two stars on the end. I really wanted to use this Flourishes set and make a card for Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday challenge which is fruit inspired this week. This stamp is from the Peaches & Cherries set, which I absolutely LOVE! I have used the cherries stamp, but this is the first run for the peaches. I colored it with my Copics and I really like the way it colored up. The DP is from K&Co. and the CS is SU - Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. I used a Fiskar's boarder punch, some bead caps and peach colored shabby seam binding. It felt great making my favorite kind of card - shabby chic!

That's pretty much all the details for this card. Now I hope you will hop on over to Our Creative Corner to see the other beautiful work by our design team.

Thanks so much for starting your weekend off with me! I sincerely appreciate your comments and encouragement.
Blessings & hugs,
