Peachy Keen GD Week, Day 5 - Purple Joy

Hello Everyone & Happy Friday!
Unfortunately this is my last day as a Peachy Keen GD. I wanted to thank all of you for leaving me the kindest comments here and on the Peachy Keen blog as well as all the support. It made me really feel special! Thank you also to the fabulous Peachy Keen DT and Kathy the owner of PK for this wonderful opportunity! Thank you ALL!

My card for today is a bit different from the ones I posted during the week so far. It's in a more clean & simple style and this time I  used Distress Inks for coloring. 

It's again that sweet bird stamp "Happy Bird and phrases". The sentiment I used is one of the phrases that come with the stamp. I stamped the image onto 300g / 140lb hot press water color paper using Archival Ink - Jet Black. Then I colored using Distress Inks (Milled Lavender, Concord Grape, Weathered Wood, Rusty Hinges - Walnut Stain to deepen the shadows) and also Twinkling H2O's on the belly for some shimmer effect. DP is from Prima.

 For decorating my card I only used a satin ribbon and some rhinestones.

Don't forget to enter my Peachy Keen candy right HERE today is your last chance. I'll randomly pick the winner tomorrow!

Peachy Keen is also having a new release blog hop starting today at 12noon CST HERE. Don't miss your chance to see all the new stuff and the chance to win some awesome prizes.

Have a wonderful weekend!

You have done such an awesome job this week. I think/hope we should/will be seeing more of you at PK. You'd make a great DT member.

I love this card and everything else that you have created all week long.
Seeing the projects has encouraged me to think about how to use my prismacolor pencils differently. Actually I colored a flower last night attempting to shade it based on what I have seen you do.
Thank you for the inspiration all week long.
