Angled Home Sweet Georgia Peaches

This is for today's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE # 227 - Home Sweet ___. Well my home state is Georgia and I was trying to choose between peaches, cotton, peanuts and tobacco. Since I wished tobacco had NEVER been discovered and I do not have any peanut or cotton images I had to go with peaches. I used an image from Stampin Up's Fresh Fruits stamped 2 times in tuxedo black Memento ink then colored with copics then I trimmed and embossed one image using my brand new Big Scallop Oval Large Nestie and the other image was trimmed in sections and popped up with deminsionals. I then used my spica glitter pen to add some shine here and there on the top layer.
My sentiment is from All Year Cheer I and it is angled for Thrusday's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE # 265 - Angled Interest. My bow is for today's OUR CREATIVE CORNER CHALLENGE - Bows. My layout is from today's SENSATION SATURDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE # 03. I have a close up of the focal image on my blog if you would like to visit.
