CCMC679: Sketch Challenge with Sweet as a Peach

I may or may not be obsessed with the You're a Peach Suite from Stampin' Up!. I thought that I would squeeze in another peachy card before summer is over and we are moving on to crunching leaves and apple cider.

I made this card for the weekly Thursday Challenge for Create with Connie & Mary. This week was a sketch challenge and as always it is a fantastic way to be inspired in your own card making and get yourself crafting and using your favourite crafting supplies! Here is an image of the original sketch.

I love putting paper on a bit of an angle on cards, so this sketch was a fun one to play with. The You're a Peach Designer Series Paper of course made this card come to life. It has so many great patterns and colours in it. I decided to go with the more simple patterns in the paper and let the fun stamped peaches be the star of the show!

The Balmy Blue striped paper was cut to 5 1/4" x 4" for the background of the card. The other 2 pieces of coordinating DSP were cut to 4" x 2 1/2". I then cut a 4th pattern from the same DSP at 3 1/2" x 1" and wrapped some Linen Thread around it before I attached it to the card. Lastly, I used the Sweet as a Peach Bundle to stamp and cut out 2 peaches. Sweet and simple! I hope you have a peachy day!
