Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge

Hello, today we have a brand new Peachy Keen Stampschallenge! It's filled with fabulous fall colors!! We hope you come join in on the fun!!
Here’s how the challenge works. We’ve taken two of our most popular challenges, the color challenge and photo inspiration challenge and combined them. (PLEASE NOTE that just for fun, in future challenges we may change this up.) We’ll you can use the photo, color palette, or any combination for endless opportunities in your creative process. Just decide what part of the challenge inspires you and create whatever you’d like. Card, home decor, scrapbook layout, WHATEVER. It’s totally up to you. Please remember that you DON’T HAVE to use Peachy Keen Stamps to play along with our challenge, but we love it when you do!
Here are the challenge photos for you to draw inspiration from, with challenge details to follow.
I was inspired to create a home decor' piece using the ever so cute PK-141 Lil' Tweets Thanksgiving stamp set.

I purchased this rustic 5x7 frame on clearance from Michael's and knew I wanted to create a great Thanksgiving project with it. 

I stamped and paper pieced both of the turkeys with scraps I had lying around. I colored each one with Copic Markers and added white gel pen accents. I also chalked their cheeks with Inkadinkado chalk ink.

I stamped the sweet little prayer on to a label die cut from My Creative Time. I added brown ribbon to the base and gold sequins to the label. Both were from my stash.

I then used an EK Success corner punch and more gold sequins to embellish the corners of the pattern paper.

The daisy is from a Spellbinder's die. I cut out each petal and inked it with Memento: Dandelion ink. Then I added a small sequin to the center to match the picture.

The leaves were cut from a My Creative Time die and inked with coordinating Memento inks.

Well that's my project!! A super cute home decor' project that will brighten someone's home on the upcoming turkey day next month.
