Let the Sunshine

Today I used the lovely new pear set again, this time pairing it…pairing the pear, ha! with the gorgeous 123 Create Kit called Sunshine.    It contains a beautiful paper pad from MME and lots of gorgeous embellishments and ribbons.
123 Create Kit Sunshine  With Banner
I used the pear trio image and colored it with Copic Markers on Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock.   I shaded around the image with Prismacolor pencils and oms.  Then I used a Memento Dew Drop in Wheat and Distress Ink in Brushed Corduroy to sponge around the image and sentiment panels.    I stamped the branch image on a separate piece of card stock, colored it with Copics, and fussy cut it and popped it up on the patterned paper.

I used a beautiful ribbon and some dainty trim and added a pretty button with some twine tied through it.   The patterned paper is so pretty that it could even stand alone without much embellishment.   
All sets are live in the store today, so head over to Flourishes and see them in all their glory!

This is one of the prettiest cards I have ever seen. I love that you have the 3 dimensional effect of the pear flower spray over the fully grown pears, which by the way, you have colored perfectly. And then PP that you used is fantastic! Great job, thanks for sharing :)
