Peachy Challenge #15: Just Cards

Wow, is it me or did this week go by super slow.  No plans for the weekend yet maybe some crafting and then taking my 13 year old to watch the Hunger Games or whenever I say it Hungry Games, LOL!

This week is ALL ABOUT CARDS! over at

Create a card using your own background!

- Design must be new
- Must be a card, with a custom-created stamped background - Link up by 5/2 - 3:00 pm EDT
- Remember, you don't have to use their stamps to link up, but they are required to earn TOP PEACH!

Here is my Card:
Card Size 4.25 x 5.5
All Stamps used is from the Peachy Keen April 2012 Stamp Kit of the Month
I used Memento Rich Cocoa to stamp the background on Kraft Paper, then I inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Inks.
I then stamped it again and on white cardstock and colored it with my copics.
Sentiment was also stamped using Memento Rich Cocoa ink.
Twine is from Trendy Twine in Chocolate Truffle

Have a Great Weekend!
