Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 17

Hello friends! Peachy Keen has a fun challenge to try and if you are the lucky winner of the draw, you will receive 2 Brand New Released sets, PK-408 Gingerbread Doll Set and PK-318 Penguin Doll Set! Kathy has been creating new stamps and are they CUTE!!!! You will want to check them out for sure!

I am thrilled to announce that I have been chosen to be on the Design Team with 7 other really talented women. Their names and links to their blogs are posted in the sidebar to the right. I hope you will visit their blogs. You won't be disappointed.

Now onto the challenge.

We have another recipe challenge for you this week. The challenge is to use the following:

* polka dot(s)
* a border
* stripe(s)
* stamped image(s)

For my card I used PK-319 Snickerdoodle Happy Elf. I stamped his image twice, once onto white cardstock and once onto green "velvet" ribbon. (I purchased this ribbon last year, for 90% off, after Christmas clearance.) I love to think of different ways to incorporate different products. I also have some red velvet ribbon that I purchased at the same time. I have used that for Santa's clothes in the past. I cut the Christmas trees from patterned paper, made the present and attached the white polka dot bow to the present with clear glue dots. The ribbon is not wired. You just twirl and tack down with the glue dots.

As always, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you can join us in the challenge. You have until December 15 to post your card to Mr. Linky. I hope you are having a wonderful day!
