PK Sketch Challenge 54

Peachy Keen Stamps :: Sketch Challenge 54

Have you ever been working on something and it just is not working???
Ah - well this is one of those projects
I made this card as a result of the following blog

Royal Purple Freedom Blog Hop

For more info you can go to
The blog discussed Domestic Violence and encouraged us to send cards. 
Each card will be donated to the Bradley Angle House in hopes of inspiring women who have finally found the courage to leave. 
When I saw this blog, I purchased four different sheets of purple paper.
I stamped the background with Market Street's Punch Tin in Vivid's Purple
I then cut 2 squares in 2 different shades of purple and rounded the corners 
Then I stamped the bottom portion of the lighter shade with another MK Stamp 
However it didn't come out right 
Tried to fix it and just made it worse
So I just had to cut out another piece and stamped it 
with Punch Tin
As for the ribbon - it is lying on top of another ribbon - AHHHHHH 
I just kept playing with it and playing with it and then finally!!
- List of other items used on this card -
Butterfly - Recollections covering up a smudge
Flowers - Prima Flowers 
The sticker is from BoBunny's Cardstock stickers set Free Spirit
I won it in a blog hop 
Aqua ribbon - from stash 
Brown ribbon - K*i memories 
Card base - Paper Studio 5" x 7'" Kraft Card
& last but not least the rhinestones are from Michael's 
Of the 3 cards I have made for the Bradley Angle House
so far this is my favorite.

PK Lets Face It Friday

This is for the Patriot Project 
The faces were stamped with Boy Mates 1 1/8" 
Ok I have to share a story. As I was stamping with this set several weeks ago 
one of the stamps with this set flew off in the air. Yes, I have yet to find it.
Oh what is a girl to do? My question is can you buy one stamp from a set?
It is the one full mouth stamp
Yes! yet again I have used the PaperShape star 
It is my current favorite - and I figured stars are perfect fot this card
White GellyRoll on the eyes 
The background was stamped with Market Street's Grungy Border in 
Rose Red - Stampin' Up 
Then I went around the edges with Distress Ink -faded jean
I distress with Memento - Lady Bug on the edge of the card and the sentiment 
which is a  new Purchased of 9 Dew Drop Memento Fade-Resistant Dye Ink 
Ribbons - Bloom K*I Memories & 
Kirkland Wire Edged Ribbon
The Sentiment from studio G 
I made the sentiment and stars pop with Fiskars pop-up glue dots 
White and Red stickles and Navy Blue from Sudio G

I am thinking my best friend might love it 
and let her know that I am thinking of her.
