Peachy Keen Challenge 32

Never mind the comments going wonky, today is the start of a new challenge at Peachy Keen.
The theme this time is........and I quote,(I've always wanted to say that)! Ha Ha......

 Summer Destinations Challenge
 "Create a card drawing inspiration from your favourite vacation destination! 
Also must use one of the three "B"s: Buttons, Brads or Bling".

 One random winner will receive....
 PK-790 Boogie Board Max
 Memento Ink Pad in Tuxedo Black 
 Coordinating acrylic block

Well, my inspiration comes from many wonderful trips to France when we had our motorvan. (RV)
We loved the fresh seafood we could buy direct from the fishing boats at all the ports we visited.
Our favourites were prawns and lobsters. So, my card celebrates those yummy crustaceans.

I'd like to introduce you to......... Pepe le Prawn!!!! Ta-Da.......... Drum roll please!

He WAS Larry the Lobster 'till Angelica and Kathy pointed out that he was a prawn. (Shrimp).
Didn't notice he didn't have the big front pincers did I! Duh. So, he's a very red prawn! Ha Ha.
Pepe is from the set PK-952 Ocean fun.  Available at the Peachy Keen Store.

The colours reflect the French flag. I used Copics on Pepe and the rest is self -explanatory.
I suppose if Pepe was substituted for a bald eagle, or a bulldog, it would make a decent card for either the US or GB. LOL

Well that's my French flavoured 'inspired' card and I hope you liked it.
If you liked THIS, you will LOVE what my mega talented friends have come up with over on the PK blog.
Please make your way over there and see what treats they have in store for you.
