Peachy Keen Challenge# 65

Hi everyone and thanks for joining me again today.
I've been very naughty by not posting anything since the last challenge. 
I haven't had much time since coming back from The States.
There was so much home stuff to catch up on!
I HAVE been beavering away though and made quite a few Christmas cards which I'll put up later. 
OK! On to today's challenge WITH A TWIST........
........USE PAPER PIECING!

Here are your guidelines.....

Create a card with the sketch & TWIST 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!

TWIST: Paper Piece your stamped image to give it a bit of dimension and flair!
Design must be new
Link up by 11/28 - 11:59 pm CDT
(5.59am 29/11 GMT)

Your Sketch....
  
My Card
  The photo is awful, but the light now is rubbish, so this is the best I managed to get.

My adorable snowman is from the set..PK-321 Snowmen, Greetings and Globe.
You can't really tell on this picture, but the DP has been cut into lengths and adhered.
I love that word 'adhered', VERY posh! lol

The DP (and the band behind the Snowman), is from a beautiful DP pad called 'Joyful Peace'.
It's made by a company called GCD Studios.

I paper pieced my little man's waistcoat and hatband with some DP I've had for AGES. 
(I coloured over it with a Copic marker to tone it down and match the other paper).
The 'Holly' was made with a Sizzix die and the 'berries' are little red gems.
We have a super guest designer joining us this week.
She's CATHY from Snip Tuck Designs.
Please give her some love. She has created some gorgeous projects for you and there's more to come!

So there you have it. Please visit the Peachy Keen SHOP for amazing discounts available today and of course... the Peachy Keen Blog where hopefully, you will join in with the challenge after getting loads of inspiration from the DT 's fabulous projects.
But above all...... HAVE FUN!
