Perfect Pear

Hi Friends

I am so excited that I’ve gotten to play in some challenges lately. I love challenges to help get the creative juices flowing. One of the things I struggle most with are layouts, so sketch challenges are a favorite of mine. I always need the help.

I decided to play in this week’s Cardpatterns challenge.  Here’s the sketch


I love the versatility and options available with this layout, so I am sure to use it again. For the challenge, here’s what I came up with


I used Lawn Fawn’s My Silly Valentine for this card.  (getting a lot of mileage out of this set during this time of year.) It “pears” so nicely with the Cosmo Cricket De Lovely paper. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and blessings

Fantastic way to showcase how Lawn Fawn can be something other than cute and fun. Way to go! Love your card.
