It's Friday! It's Peachy Keen Challenge time!

Hi everyone! I hope the weather by you is treating you kindly?
We have wall to wall wet here, UGH!

OK! Are you ready for the second Peachy Keen Challenge of the New Year?....
'Create a card or layout of your choice following the sketch provided'.
We'll be awarding "TOP PEACH" to the player who uses their Peachy Keen Stamps this week 
and two runners up will receive a spiffy badge to display on their blog! 

Design must be new, created specifically for this challenge
Must be a card or layout that follows the sketch provided
Link up by 01/16 - 11:59 pm EDT
Remember, you don't have to use our stamps to link up, 
but they are required to earn TOP PEACH!
Here's your sketch...
Nice and simple to get your creative juices flowing!

This is my original sample. I used the fabulous  PKSC-12
Coloured as ever with my trusty Copics.
I totally forgot to add the faces on the flames of the candles 
and in trying to add them retrospectively, cocked 'em up! 
I ended up trying to remove the flames to stamp them and ended up tearing the flame 
and the paper behind it, spoiling the card. IDIOT!

BUT!!! a phoenix rising from the ashes,
I salvaged the champagne bottle and banner and put them on a different card.
Not too bad a make-over eh!

(Wasn't going to waste all that Peachy goodness)!

There are so many options for this amazing stamp set, it'll take me all year to exhaust 'em!

So, please pop on over to the Peachy Keen Challenge blog and feast your eyes on the scrummy samples waiting for you there created by some of the other fabulous DT ladies

Visit the PK Store to get your mitts on some fab stamps in the SALE that's going on!!
It ends tomorrow so hurry!.

I do hope you'll join in the challenge. 
Remember, you have until 16th Jan to create your project. BAGS of time to play along!
Good luck and happy crafting.

Om my goodness...well I can't tell you how many times I've botched up cards because I forgot something on them. Your cards came out beautiful...and hey, who would know if you didn't tell us, right?! We are our own worst critic. TFS your cards. --C

I have done similar things so no worries! Way to rise above the issues and create a second card :) Wonderful showcase of purple too. Have a great weekend!

Beautiful cards, Viv! I loved the first one without the faces but I'm sure it would have looked great with them. Your second card is so pretty! I'm glad you were able to save the banner and wine bottle!
