Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Sept. Release

Hello everyone!  I mentioned yesterday that Peachy Keen Stamps had their September Stamp Release last week. And over at the Peachy Keen Connection they had a couple of fun challenges.  So today I have my card for Challenge #2 ~ Sketch Challenge.  The guidelines for this challenge:  You can make anything you would like as long as it follows the basic elements of the sketch and includes Peachy Keen Stamps.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

The card base, the orange cardstock and the grey cardstock are from Recollections.  The striped patterned paper is from the Die Cuts With A View ~ The Bella Armoire stack.  The pretty ribbon accent is made with 3 different ribbons: black ~ Celebrate It : Occasions Tulle, orange ~ Celebrate It : 360 ribbon and purple ~ Sheer Creations ribbon.  And in the upper corners, I added some purple gems from my stash.

I used the My Creative Time ~ XL Label Die to cut the opening.  Then on the inside, I used the Haunted House stamp from the brand new Peachy Keen Stamps ~ September 2012 : Kit of the Month.  I used yellow and green ~ Prismacolor Pencils to color in the house.  And then around the outside of the house I used some black chalk, with purple chalk accents in the top half and green chalk accents in the bottom half.  I thought it gave it an eerie look.  And if you look closely, I used a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add some little eyes to the ghost in the doorway.  Cute!  :)

That's it for today.  I love how spooky it looks!!! What do you think?  Have a great day everyone! 

And don't forget ~ Today is "Show Me Your Technique" over at My Creative Time.  Let's hop on over there and learn something new!!!

See you all tomorrow!

Everything looks great! I liked the 3 ribbons effect and the little eyes in the ghost are perfect...they stand out very well and almost glow.
