A "Peach" of a sketch

     The new challenge is up and it's a sketch this week. As soon as I seen it I went straight to work on my card since I don't have time to torture my brain this week, and with Father's Day on Sunday I am all set. Well almost, I was planning to make him a #1 dad frame, the one I was trying to come up with for last weeks challenge.  My hubby is having brain surgery on the 19th and I have a bunch of things on my to do list to get done and out of the way between now and Monday, so yes...I am early posting for the challenge!

     The plaid paper is from the 6.5 X 4.5 DCWV Tahiti Beach Stack I bought a few yrs back, I love the prints in this, I also have the 12X12 stack. DCWV is one of my fave paper companies. The blue paper is recollections and the yellow is a misc. piece from my stash drawer. 
     I made the "tie's" from pieces of ribbon and added pearls to the brown and cream tie's and gems stuck to a mini piece of wire I twisted, they are suppose to represent the "tie tacks" men use to keep the shorter end of the tie from popping out the sides. :) ( at least I think that's what they are for, LOL)  I had them all the perfect length to match the sketch but they started freying and I had to cut them down again, they took to long to start over. LOL
     I stamped the winner's ribbon on matching piece's of the blue and yellow paper and cut out the blue one by hand. Then cut out the yellow circle with a spellbinders circle die, and did the same for the small blue circle and stamped the sentiment in the centre from PKSC-05 May 2012 kit of the month. I used the same set to stamp the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. :)
     I hope you like my card today and ty so much for stopping by. Please leave a comment and I will come see what you've been up to. Have a great day and happy crafting! Hope you have a great wkend, and everyone's special "DAD" gets treated right. See you all when I can, big inky hugs!!!
