Peachy Keen Challenge #22

Hya ladies. It's time for another fabulous Peachy Keen challenge.
I decided to give my Copics a rest for this card and used Crayola pencils and Sansador instead.
(I'd practically forgotten how to as it's been so long since I used them).
The colours are  lot richer than I can reproduce with my camera. It just WON'T show true colours. Arghh!!
Oh well, moan over, onwards and upwards as they say.
This week's challenge is a sketch. (I LOVE sketches).
How great is THAT! Wonderful stuff!

Here's what I did with it.......

I just got my latest order fromSU so used some of the fabulous DP for this card.
Don't you just LOVE that stamp! It's PK-402 Mistletoe Twist.
(It's actually a Christmas stamp, but I didn't ink his hand with the mistletoe in it and now it's a cute Valentine's card).
I used white peel-offs for the message. I can't remember the last time I used a peel-off!
It's actually two put together. Don't tell anyone.
The ribbon is SU and the flowers are from Papermania.
The 'leaves' are made with a McGill punch called 'Pine'.

Now you've seen the sketch and my sample, why not pop on over to the Peachy Keen blog and take a look at the amazing samples made by the other fabulous DT members.
While you're there, you can get all the details for joining in with our challenges and news of the wonderful prize Peachy Keen has to offer the lucky winner.

Thanks for calling by, I appreciate it so much.

Oh how BEAUTIFUL Viv!!! I just adore the colors you chose. Such a super sweet Valentine! Forgive my ignorance, but what is a peel-off? I'm thinking it's probably a sticker or a rub on, but I have never heard that term on this side of the pond. HEHEHE
