More Peachiness!

The new August Release is out from Peachy Keen 
If you have children in school, these new stamps are going to be right up your street!
Have a look HERE at all the awesomeness!
To get the new release off to a flying start, Peachy Keen hosted a release party on Sunday evening at 6pm.
That meant midnight for us over here, but that's fine. Well worth staying up for!
The challenges end at midnight(ish) CST, 6am(ish) GMT, so if you hurry, 
you have time to play along for a chance to win some fabulous stamps from the release!
  I played along with the challenges and here is what I did for Challenge #1...
The criteria was 3 different papers and a unique or special fold.
I found one on Youtube by Dawn Griffith HERE, that I liked. 
The theme, not surprisingly ,was The London Olympics.
This is the front of the card....
This is the card opened out....
I just love that little Olympian!!
He's from the July release, PKSC-07 (He's a little farm boy really).
I paper pieced him with a mixture of Papermania's 'Portobello Road'
and Forever Friends 'Best Of British papers.
I also used those two sets on the matting.
The 'T' shirt is from an SVG that comes with the set. 
(I enlarged it a bit to fit the words that I cut out on my Expression).

Well, that's one down and one to go.
I'll be back tomorrow with my offering for Challenge #2.
Enjoy the sunshine if you've got it, It doesn't appear very often here. lol
