Thanks for Lending an Ear!......{PKS Challenge}

Morning everyone!!
Hope you are all having a GREAT weekend so far! I am off to my son's football game today but wanted to pop in with my entry for this week's Peachy Keen Stamps challenge.
For this challenge we were asked to create a project using the color photo as our inspiration. So I took the corn from the pic as well as the colors and paired it up with the sketch from 
And here is what I came up with......

I started my card out with a Kraft cardstock base and added my layer of designer paper. I am sure you all know by now how much I love my sewing machine so I did add a border around the base mat and then another one around the mat for that adorable corn stalk (PK~292 Faceless Corn). After stamping my corn stalk on the background paper, I stamped it two more times on the yellow and green designer papers....all from the Echo Park Happy Camper paper pack. I paper pieced the corn, glued the pieces onto the stamped designer paper and then took the whole layer and attached it to my card.
Following the sketch, I added another strip of brown polka dot paper from the same stack and then stamped my sentiment on the green using the PKS~ Faceless Corn stamp set. I used 2 more corns that I paper pieced for the embellishment next to the sentiment, adding some Jute Sting to the tops. As the final finishing touches, I placed some navy candi's on each of the corners and added some white gel pen to the pks corn faces.
So there you have it! What do you think???

Supplies Used:
Paper~ Kraft, Echo Park~Happy Camper
Embellishments~ Jute String-Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions
Sewing Machine
white gel pen, hot glue
