Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 21, Day 1

Hello to all Peachy Fans and Happy Memorial Day for those in the US. My name is Iris and usually you find me blogging here at my blog Paper Crafting in Cocoa. It's an honor to be invited to a full GDT week here at Peachy Keen. Thanks a lot for this great opportunity! :-) I was a crafting all my life but I started stamping and paper crafting in 2007 and have been hooked ever since :-) I am also a full time designer for Belles 'n Whistles stamps, Whimsy Stamps and a DT member for the Lovely-Hanglar-Only challenge blog.

Ok enough about me and on to my project for today....

For the first card I made I used this super adorable "Happy Bird and phrases" stamp. I colored using Copics and Prisma pencils to deepen the shadows.

Here's a list with the materials used:

Stamp:  PK-267 Happy Bird and phrases
Designer Paper: Nitwitt Collections, digital papers
Coloring: Copics & Prisma pencils
Flowers: Prima, Petaloo & my stash
Charm I found at Tuesday Morning
Ribbon from my stash

Now on to the sweet stuff ;-) I also have a yummy candy for you!

You can win this:

PK-229 Funny Flowers

What you have to do:
Leave a comment here at the Peachy Keen blog and over at my blog on all five days of my GDT week! Also enter your name in the linky gadget on my blog. I will randomly choose a winner from these entries but will check if you left comments on all days ;-)  I'll draw and announce the winner on Saturday June 4th.Have fun playing!

Thanks for your visit today and I would love to hear if you like my little inspiration.
Have a wonderful day!
