This card is made with Sahara Sand Cardstock, using StazOn Black, background colours are Soft Suede & Old Olive, the pear & leaf were using Wild Wasabi, Old Olive, River Rock & a retired colour Cream Caramel. Using all four I have blended them to create a real looking pear, after cutting some shapes I had purchased elsewhere, I dappled around the edges with the Soft Suede & Old Olive. I used some twine I had & attached it to the card... tied it in a knot, then used a brad from the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration, 2012 book (which ends on the last day of March, 2012). Oh yeah, not that it really shows very well but the pear & it's leaf have been popped.
I an putting this into a challenge at The Stamp Spot, which is an Australian run Site. Click on the address to take you there.....
