Peachy Keen Challenge 27

Another challenge, and the only crafting I can find time (barely) to do. The color scheme worked wonderfully for me for a mother's day card (purple is my mom's favorite color). The actually design gave me fits, I knew what I wanted to do, but didn't quite know how to pull it together. Thankfully my new Peachy Keen stamps arrived to save the day, that birdie is PERFECT for what I wanted to do.

Peachy Keen Challenge 26

The requirements for this challenge were this:
*Stitching (either by sewing needle or hand-drawn)
*White and Orange (card could have more colors, but must include these two in the card)
*Contain one upcycled item (something that could be thrown away but instead will make its way onto your work of art!)
*Any Peachy Keen Stamp

This challenge was very difficult for me, mostly because I REALLY don't like orange...except in fall (halloween, leaves, etc). But I figured I could try. Upcycled items...hmmm, I made everything out of scraps, some were barely big enough for the cuts, but I made it work.
