Peachy Keen Challenge #15

WHAT a week and it's only Tuesday!!!!!!
Firstly I'm chosen to be on the new DT for 'Card for Men', then I have my début as Mercy's November Guest Muse and now it's time for another Peachy Keen Challenge. Whoo Hoo, WHAT a ride!
Am I lucky or WHAT!

OK, let's crack on with the latest Peachy Keen Challenge.

This week we have a sketch for you......
  Create a card or project with the sketch, upload in Mr. Linky on the Peachy Keen blog and you are in with a chance of winning a great prize! You have until  midnight Sunday, CST on 15th November. BAGS of time!
You don't have to use Peachy Keen stamps to play along, in fact, you don't need to use a stamp at all.
While you're there, take a look at the fantastic creations the other DT members have come up with!

Here's mine.......

This is my very first easel card. (Can't seem to photograph the true colours on this one).
I saw one when a group of us visited Monk's Den craft shop in Ashby-de-la-Zouch. (Don'cha just LOVE that name)!
I used one of my favourite snowman, PK-306a. He's such a cutie! I also used the sentiment from the set, PK-311, 'Snowmany Thanks'.
Matted onto oval Nesties, which  keep the card upright.
The DP are Papermania's, 'Home for Christmas'.
I've used red gems for holly berries around the 'wreath'. (Created with a McGill punch called 'Pine').
It's almost identical to the MS Branch punch!
The red ribbon is a lot more vibrant IRL. Can't get a decent photo of this card and it's driving me mad!
The instructions for this card can be found here. Posted by the SCS hostess. Lynn in St Louis.
Remember, if you post to SCS, please use the keywords PKS or peachy keen stamps. For SNR it's pks or peachykeenstamps.

Have a fabulous Tuesday....I AM!
