Pears

It is time for sneak peek #2 on the Flourishes blog.  Today the Flourishes Design Team is featuring a new set called Pears.  I love the realistic designs of Marcella Hawley. 


Lush pears ripe for the season, that's what this beautiful set by Marcella Hawley delivers. This 4 by 6" set features a flowering branch with fruit, a trio of pears and a beautiful section of a blossoming branch. Comes complete with four gorgeously scripted sentiments that are perfect for all occasions.


Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/ Kraft, Dark Shadow, Neenah/ Solar White
Patterned Paper: My Minds Eye
Spellbinder Dies: Petite Ovals LG&SM
Ribbon: Cotton Linen White (Flourishes Store)
Twine & Button: PTI
Lace: Wrights

I used a lot of different green Copics for this image.  I also used B000 for the blue around the image.  





I took these pictures of our pear trees 2 years ago.  They are such a beautiful blossom, but they sure are stinky.  I went out one day and couldn't figure out what smelled so bad.  I followed my nose and sure enough it was the Pear blossoms.






Do you want to win this set?  One of the ladies on our link list below will be picking a name from the comments on her blog post today. We don’t know which one it is… so the more blogs you leave comments on, the more chances you have to win! So, head on over and see how our fabulously talented DT used this beautiful new set.

I had no idea pear blossoms were stinky! Your card on the other hand is the exact opposite of stinky. Love it. The blue background really makes them pop. Amazing colouring job.
