Birthday Peaches

I think this is the very first time I've done the Weekend Sketch Challenge. Just never has been enough time, but this sweet little sketch really got my attention and I made time to do it. This week's challenge was hosted by Laurie Schmidlin.

The focal image is a Karen Lockhart stamp called, well, Peaches, LOL. Peaches will be coming in here soon so I thought it was time to get this one out and dusted off. What a cute image this is--as are all Lockhart stamps. It was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Pure Luxury 80 lb paper by Gina K, and colored with Copic markers. Then cut/embossed with a classic oval Nestabilities die, matted, and popped up on 3M foam squares. My patterned paper is from the Nana's Kitchen mat stack by DCWV and my card stock is Wild Wasabi and Really Rust, along with a Whisper White base. The sentiment is from PTI's Mixed Messages set, stamped with Tuxedo Black on Whisper White, cut out with a Spellbinder's tag die, and tied on with Perle cotton. Some ribbon and some buttons and that's that!

I'm so glad you dropped in today! Be sure to come back tomorrow for the Color Throwdown Challenge!
