A Perfect Pear


Just a personal note from me to start with...thanks so much to many of you for your kind encouragment with my post the other day.  Hugs!  



We’re back for another round of fun in our Flourishes Gambler’s Sale!  Today the girls have pulled out some of their favourite sets from the sale to inspire you!


I picked up a really pretty set I hadn’t used in a long time -  Pears, stamping it on Flourishes Classic White card stock (my all time favourite paper to colour on!).  I coloured it up with Copics to match this really lovely paper from Carta Bella - Hello Again.  Aren’t the colors great?  I love the minty green with the pop of orangy-yellow.  

I used Karen’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge this week trimming down the pear image with an out-of-the-box style.  


The sweet sentiment (perfect for a wedding don’t you think?) is stamped in Memento Canteloupe ink (only the refill available now), and I’ve added some lace and sequins to accent and then paired it all with Color Made Easy Tiger Lily Cardstock.  



Inside I stamped the smaller blossom stamp - it’s a perfect match for the designer paper.    


Now here’s the fun part for you... our Gambler’s Sale discount is up to 20% off!!

I love this set. Perfect how you matched the coloring to the papers. Also, wonderful job with the sketch, and I like how you kept it easy to slip into an envelope, but still with interesting accents. Very pretty, Christine!
