It’s a Peachy Keen kind of Project!

This morning I had to whip out a card for a 4-year-old little girl’s birthday party we went to today and decided that I would design the card around a challenge I saw last night at Peachy Keen.  The Peachy Keen Challenge: 18 is an anything goes the project so that made it be a wonderful luxury to being free in my card design.

I have been really wanting to try out making rosettes with crepe paper streamers and they were a snap (I made an extra one for another card I will be needing to make soon).  I followed the tutorial I found on Pinterest.

Thanks for coming and sharing a piece of “it is all just peachy keen” pie with me!
