Winter Pear

Ok, so it's not really a "winter" pear...it's a pear card for the first day of winter. The layout is another Splitcoaststampers challenge. I started a new box of designer paper for the first layer - it seemed to complement the pear stamp image just right. The pear was stamped on watercolor-textured cardstock and colored with colored pencils and a bit of marker. I ended up cutting around the image because I was trying to use a corner punch on the rectangle and one corner punched crooked. That's what's known as a happy accident, because the second mat of white with pink behind the edge punches turned out better than my original idea! Other details: 4 small pieces of grosgrain ribbon, a metal embellishment, and silver glitter pen edged around the pear, that was raised up on pieces of thin cardboard rather than pop dots.
