"Peek-A-Boo" PaperBlooms technique challenge 7/29

Hi Everyone! First of all I would like to thank each of you for your great participation in the PaperBlooms challenges! I personally am inspired by each one of your creations, So Thank You!
Next, I would like to welcome Carla to the PaperBlooms design team! Visit her blog to check out some awesome creations! Also check out the rest of the design team for even more inspiration : Shelly, Rose, Sherry, & our leader, Leah.
Ok, now on to this week's challenge! The task for you all to tackle is to make a peek-a-boo card. "What??" Well, make a card like usual, except, hide your sentiment somewhere on your card.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy right?
I have to admit, this one had me stumped. I called my best friend, Cassie to toss some ideas around, and in the midst of talking about other ways to play peek-a-boo with my sentment, this stamp set from There She Goes jumped to the front of my mind and we were off to the races. I actually made the coffee cup before I made the card. It is not unusual for me to make cards kind of backwards. lol

And remember, you do not have to use Leah's paperblooms on your project to play along! If you would like to find out more about these amazing hand made embellishments, check out Leah's Esty Shop! She takes custom orders AND offers free shipping! What more can you ask for? ;)
