Practicing Creativity

A Pear Themed Birthday Card

Today's card features a free pear  digital stamp from Beccy's Place. I encourage you to give the link a click. Beccy has graciously shared several wonderful freebies on her site. The sentiment was created with Atelas font.

Paper is long retired Authentique Latest & Greatest paper pad. I have had this paper forrrreeevvver, purchased during a long ago visit to the States. I'm sad to see how the pad is depleting. Everything I make with it turns out so nice (like this frilly vintage look Paris card).

Embellishments are three enamel dots.

  1. FIRST OF ALL, OMG, - I LOVE THE NEW LOOK!! (Yes, I'm shouting.) YOUR BLOG LOOKS AMAZING! AND YOUR NEW PROFILE PIC - GORGEOUS!! Loved reading about how you came up with your blog name (and my eyes didn't glaze over even once. (: )

    Wonderful card too! It's so fresh and classy. All the layers look fabulous. And I love the pun too, of course.

    1. Hihihihi...thank you so much, Jan! I'm glad you like it and that your eyes didn't glaze over with the long winded 'About' explanation.

  2. Your card is fabulous! I love all the gorgeous papers you used, they layer so well together. The addition of the black and yellow card stock gives everything a nice frame too. Your colouring is lovely, you've really done a great job with the image. Love those three simple enamel dots too.

  3. Athentique does make nice papers. Your pear looks so lush. Beautiful coloring. Great card.

  7. I love your pear card, Shani! It's crisp and clean, and you colored the fruit so beautifully. I also enjoy the new look of your blog, and I can describe it the same way as your card: crisp and clean. I see you have a new bio pic too, and you look great! I hope you're pleased with the new blog look; the company you hired to help you did a good job.
