Peachy Keen Challenge 58

Good Morning Peachy Keen friends!  Time for another Tuesday Sketch Challenge.  For my card I used PK-335 Christmas Heads.  I chose the Gingers.  I love the gingerbread stamps!  They are so cute and Peachy Keen has a large selection to choose from.  This set is from the newest release of stamps.

I used the 1 inch ginger faces from the PK-484 Snowmany Face Assortment set.  I don't know how Kathy continues to create such a variety of these adorable faces!  I know I have said this many times, but I just can't help myself, "These stamps sure do make me smile!"  Since I was using just the heads, I decided to use the ginger hands from PK-327 Winter Peekers and Phrases set.  Finally I used PK-322 Christmas Tag Minis to create the garland and snowflake.  I colored the images with Copics.  I applied Viva cream colored Pearl Pen to the gingers hair and hands and also to the snowflake.  I love the dimension and gloss of the pearl pens.  The ribbon I used is retired from Stampin Up.  The finished card size is 5x7.  I had a lot of fun making this card.  To read all the details of the challenge and to view what the other designers have created please visit the Challenge Blog here.  They have made some wonderful samples once again!  Also our guest designer this week is Gaby http://www.gabycreates.com.  Welcome Gaby!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,

I have never heard of those pearl pens before but I LOVE the look.

  8. I just LOVE this to bits Janice!!! It reminds me of an ice-cream parlour to take out!! The top note shape looks like a window awning and the Gingers are serving customers through the window. How DO you think up such amazing little scenes???
    Just look at the tiny little bow on the girl's head! Brilliant! Everything about this card has the wow factor!
