Happy Anniversary to the Perfect Pear

Friends of mine are celebrating their 5th anniversary soon, and I wanted a somewhat fun card for them as they are a fun couple.  

I used the Frantic Stamper Juicy Pears, cutting them out on watercolor paper and coloring them with various watercolor inks.  On the inside of the card I wrote "to the perfect pear".

I also had this new Mini Squares stencil by Creative Expressions that I wanted to use.  I mixed some Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Sparkle Texture Paste with some green inks and applied it over the stencil, scrapping it off with an old credit card, hoping this would give a little dimension to the card.  In hindsight, I should have done more stenciling on the card.

These products are available at the Ecstasy Crafts store.  Thanks for stopping by.
