PKS Let's Face it Friday Challenge--Shape Card

The latest Let's Face it Friday Challenge over at the Peachy Keen Stamps blog is a shape card.  I have a friend who just bought her first house and I needed a card to go with her housewarming gift.  This challenge was perfect for it! 

Since I didn't win the faces in the last challenge (LOL), I used  my Everyday Paper Dolls face assortment set for the face on the heart.  I then covered the heart and the tulips with glossy accents to add some texture.  I used liquid pearls for the door knob.  If you have any questions, please let me know!  Thanks for looking!

Paper: Stampin' Up!
Ink: Stampin' Up!, Tim Holtz distress ink (walnut stain)
Cartridges: Create a Critter
Stamps: Everyday Paper Dolls (PKS)

PKS-Let's Face It Friday-So Punny!

Ok, I admit....this is my first time to create a card like this....ever.  I really want to win the PKS Basic Paper Doll Assortment Face set!!  It is so cute!  I only have the Everyday Character Face Assortment and I NEED the Basic Face Assortment to use for all my paper doll and other creations!!!  LOL!!! 

I am entering this card into the Let's Face It Friday-So Punny! Challenge over at the PKS challenge blog.  For all the info, click HERE.  All you have to do is link up a card using a pun sentiment and a PKS face stamp.  I had no idea where to start, but I found this older Stampin' Up! set (One Smart Cookie) that I thought would be perfect.  That's really where I got my idea.  I looked for a bunch of grapes on my cricut cartridges, but I don't own a cartridge with a bunch of grapes!  Oh no, what to do?!?!  Improvise and make your own!!  I punched the circles with a 3/4" circle punch and layered them together to look like a bunch of grapes.  I cut the leaves from the 50 states cartridge and created my own stem.  I tried out an embossing folder technique that I saw Christina do a couple of weeks ago.  I think this card came out really cute!!  I need to pull out those face assortment sets and use them more often.  If my number gets chosen to win the PKS Basic Face Assortment set, I'll have more to choose from!!!! :)  Thanks for looking!!!
