It's Peachy Keen Challenge #64 and I'm home!

Welcome to the PK Challenge #64!

Create a card with the sketch provided. Peachy Keen Stamps are not required to participate, but we always love to see what you create with them if you have them already!
Design must be new
Link up by 11/14 - 11:59 pm CDT

When I saw this sketch, I immediately thought of a 50s style television set.

Here's what I came up with...

Here's a view showing the acetate 'glass' TV screen

And a view showing the sides of the 'TV'..

 I borrowed the concertina sides off a fabulous card Kim made, HERE... for my cabinet
and stamped the card with the 'Woodgrain' background stamp from Market Street stamps
I used three brads for the knobs and a Nestie die was used to cut out the 'screen'.
I backed the 'screen' with acetate to replicate glass.

Doncha just LOVE those adorable Gingerbreads!!!

They were a delight to paper piece and colour, meaning you have an endless choice of costumes for them!
(I made that little wreath on the 'wall', with two circle punches and a MS branch punch).
 Actually, all the materials for this project were gleaned from the Peachy Keen workshop.

If you hadn't already heard, I've just got home from spending TEN of THE most wonderful days in the company of the Peachy Queen herself, her delightful family and some of my wonderful PK Design Team friends, Lorie, Janice, Lisa and Kim. Amazing people!
Not forgetting the hilarious Lauri and the sweet Dobea, beavering away in the background.

Now, back to the challenge.
Please hop on over to the Peachy Keen Challenge blog for details of the prizes up for grabs for FOUR lucky winners and to see the fabulous creations my amazing DT Sisters have come up with for your inspiration.
Have a great week and happy crafting!
