Speedy's Challenge #36, Let's See Your New Stuff!

Hello, and welcome to Speedy The Cat's Challenge #36! This weeks challenge is easy, all you have to do is use something new on your creation! A big beautiful package of goodies arrived at my door on Wednesday, so I used this new stamp set, new paper and an embossing folder I bought a while ago but hadn't used yet!

Please make sure to upload your creation to the Mark's Finest Paper Blog, for your chance to win. There is a FREE stamp set from the next month's release drawn for ever 50 entries. You can enter as often as you like, but if you use MFP stamps, you will be entered twice!

So today I used the new 'Take A Peek' set from Mark's Finest Papers. I got a little adventurist since this card is for my SIL's Birthday so I decided to make a Tilt Card. The picture below shows him tilted a bit! I also used this weeks sketch challenge SC313.

I stamped the cute little raccoon in black twice, and coloured with copics. I punched one with a 3" circle punch, and cut out the other.

All the paper used is from Mark's Finest Papers, the DP is October Afternoon-Thrift Shop. The flowers embossed in the background were made with the Crafts-too flowers EF.

I added a little shimmer to the centers of the flowers with a copic atyou spica in turquoise and a tiny gem to the sentiment, which is also in the "Take a Peek" stamp set.

Have a Great Day!
