Quite the Pear

Another card from my scrap bin for the Less is More color challenge. I am also entering this one in the Paper Players theme challenge: love. This is a valentine's day card, albeit a bit non-traditional in both the color and image. The stamp is from the dollar bin at Michaels, and I used a doily to highlight the image. One pear is paper pieced, the other is stamped with purple ink. I stamped the image in white, but I didn't like how it looked, so I stamped over it again with a purple ink. Still a bit too light for me, but it's got a nice dimensional effect.


Thanks for looking!
