Peachy Keen Mini Challenge card~

Peachy Keen challenge

The challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps was to use white as the main color, polka dots and one of their face stamps (I so love these stamps!). This is the first challenge I've ever done....and it's really hard when you have to follow rules...lol  ( I used the PK-490 and PK- 493) I so need more of these sets.... I didn't realize the size difference in the stamp sets... You live and you learn... :) I hope you like my little snowmen... Have a super week!!
