The perfect pear

Hello sweet bloggers,

This is a card I made this morning after really pushing myself. The image is a stamp from Hampton Art and it has been coloured with water colour pencils. The printed paper was won two years ago in Terry's blog candy. The sponging on the paper below the image was done by Zeenya (my older one) in the good old days when she used to love card making. The flowers are from my stash as is the ribbon. The leaf at the bottom left is a pressed leaf which has sentimental value as I picked it up while walking in a park in France !!! I have to add that I do like this card and the colours on it.


I am going to enter this in the following challenges:
http://addicted-to-stamps-challenge.blogspot.co.uk/ - bring on spring (lots of flowers)
http://challenges4everybody.blogspot.co.uk/ - anything goes
http://opus-gluei.blogspot.com/ - spring has sprung
http://ppp-makeitmonday.blogspot.com/ - anything goes

Hope you are having a good week...

Catch you later.

Love,

Monica

Hello dear Monica! I love all your cards because they are all so different and unique - you really know how to place your embellishments and give each card special value. This is so cute with the pears! I adore the sponging by Zeenya - she did a marvelous job! Love the added leaf that you found in Paris - VERY nice! ;-)

Shame that kids grow out of cardmaking with their mums, I do live in hope that my daughter may return to it in about ten years. :-) I liked how this card came together. Lots of memories for you

What a beautiful card, the coloring is so soft and gentle, works wonderfully for the sentiment. I also love that you included something so dear to you in the pressed leaf, isn't it wonderful to have a craft that can be so heartfelt? Thank you for sharing it with us at Opus Gluei, it's perfect (or should that be pear-fect? LOL). I'm sorry I didn't comment sooner, I've had ongoing computer issues...argh...
