Quite the PEAR



Seems to be the season for engagements! When I spotted the colors over at The Paper Players, this pear set  grabbed my full attention. I took a bite and went with it, embossing a few of the background pieces and still keeping it simple but sweet.

I used the Sweet Stop Sketches sketch as the base for my card,


along with these beautiful springy colors over at The Paper Players blog...


and....I don't usually like to combine more than two challenges at once, it gets a bit confusing to say the least BUT I made sure to keep all the elements correct, so I could also enter my card over at Our Creative Corner. The lovely DT at OCC is asking for a bit of paper piecing (my pear), no ribbon (check) and only 1 embellishment (my lonely pink bling).


Many blessing to the happy couple(s)!!
