Sweet Pears

Over the weekend I visited my LSS and as soon as I saw the Nook and Pantry pear paper I grabbed it with this Little Paper Shop pear image in mind - the paper and image make the perfect pear :>). I have more goofy puns in mind which I will spare you from!!

The pears are a free digi available to Little Paper Shop forum members, you can join HERE. This image would be perfect to try out if you have never used digis before.

Today's card combines a few challenges:

First is the Little Paper Shop's challenge to use distressing. Besides inking up and distressing the paper edges, I inked up the green paper a bit and also added a bit of stitching to the pear PP. Vintage buttons too!

And last, but not least...Joanne B has a paper piecing challenge this week. She will be doing challenges for the next 3 weeks in celebration of her 3rd blogaversary, with a giveaway at the end, so be sure to check out her blog - Just a Little Something.


Details: Stamp - LPS Digi Pears and PTI Handwritten Notes (sentiment), Ink - SU Black, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip, Paper - SU Very Vanilla and Kraft, PP - BasicGrey Nook and Pantry, Foof-a-la buttons, PTI Twine and Sizzix Argyle 2 Embossing Folder (my new fave!).
