Life Is Peachy!

But not the album by Korn (although that is one fabulous album!), but just a couple of peachy cards I made this weekend.

This first one is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch #114 and CR84FN62 to use these colours. I wasn't so sure at first, but turns out I love this colour combo!


And here's my card.

My next card is for Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #145 to use Paper Piecing, Viva La Verve's Sketch #1 for September and Play Date Café's Challenge #148 to use these colours. I instantly thought these colours would be great for a guy card, but thought I would try them on a girly card. I couldn't find any patterned papers that had a print on that I wanted to use so I made my own using my Itty Bitty punch to punch loads of  tiny flowers and glued them all over the Night of Navy piece. Took ages to do but is almost what I wanted!


And here's my card.

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
