I stamped the pear with archival black ink on brown cs. I wanted to see how colored pencils looked on brown compared to black and I really liked the outcome. I used pink and light green pencils. To coordinate I used pink and green cs for the background. I divided the background by drawing a line in the center from top to bottom and then from side to side just above center. I took my quilting ruler and drew 45 degree lines. I cut the cs pieces and adhered to a piece of computer copy paper to eliminate bulk. Then it was run through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder from Stampin' Up! and edged using a gold calligraphy marker. I wrapped the ribbon around this, tied knot and trimmed.
The sentiment was stamped on white cs and punched out with a decorative label punch, edged in light pink and attached over the ribbon. This entire piece was attached to a brown mat and then a pink mat. The pear was popped up onto the finished card.
