Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 27

I was so excited to come home and see my neighbors' daffodils in full bloom (tulips are a little sleepy still, but they'll wake up soon), and my beautiful lilac full of green buds. Springtime is a great time of year; it's still a little chilly but you can't resist the promise of new life and a new season. That sentiment is what inspired this weeks' challenge!

Before I reveal the challenge, I'd like to congratulate 12. Tara Mason as she is our lucky random winner for Challenge 26! She made such a sweet bumblebee and flower "hello" card with her Peachy Keen faces. Check it out if you haven't already! Tara, please email me your info and we will ship your prize out to you. Everyone's cards were so awesome and unique! I loved seeing how creative everyone was with their "up"cycling! It really is fun to see what "junk" you can turn into an absolute treasure! Onto the next challenge...

What inspires you? This week, simply create a card using the attached color palette and base your ideas on the inspiration images. No idea is too abstract- let your mind run wild! These entries will be judged by the DT, Kathy and myself. They'll be judged based on the following criteria:
  • Original creativity
  • Quality of work
  • Interpretation of challenge
Only one entry per person please. If you have more than one entry, we will use the first as your entry for the contest. Thanks for understanding. :) Please link up your entry no later than May 2nd to be eligible for the prize. Have fun!

Color Palette and Inspiration Images

Viv's card looks like it came right out of a fairytale!! She used the newest birdie to the PKS line, PK-267.

Lorie has created the cuuuuutest little bluebird and polka dot pair! She also used PK-267.

Janice whipped up the most darling bunch of grapes (Simple Simon collection) and sweet little animal friends (PK-214 and PK-204).

Jacqui's gorgeous work of art was made using PK-780 (which is one of my personal faves)!

Nikki has captured such a sweet mother/daughter bird moment using PK-267 and PK-268! Awww!

Emma's elegant and simply stated Mother's Day card was made using PK-268.

Sonia used PK-268 as well to create her fun and funky Mother's Day card!

Remember this challenge will be judged, so please be sure to enter by May 2nd for a chance to win! The prize for this challenge is a $25 gift certificate to Peachy Keen Stamps! Good luck everyone!
