Winner will be announced on our blog hop post on 2/5.  If you’re just popping in, be sure to stop by the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog so you don’t miss anything!



I wanted to create a card that looked like a postcard, so this is what I came up with. 
Everything on this card was stamped using the new PKSC-25 February SOTM set. I paper pieced the tree and added it to a background green that I hand cut to look like a hill. I stamped the clouds along with the sun and the sentiment. The bear was colored with Copic Markers and the postage stamps was also colored with Copic Markers. The stamps is actually 4 separate stamps  that I combined for that look. 
To finish, I hand drew the lines with a ruler and added some twine.

I hope you all liked my card and thanks for visiting! Make sure you head over to the Peachy Keen Blog today through Tuesday to see more fabulous sneak peeks and then come hop with us on Wednesday when we share the full reveal. 
Have a great day!
