To My Friend!

I am so happy with the way this card turned out. I experimented a little with something I wanted to try and it worked! The stamp set is called Faith in Nature:

What I experimented with was my Blender Pen and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint. I first colored my pear image with the Lucky Limeade Stampin' Write Marker. I then dipped my Blender Pen in my Shimmer Paint container......just on the very tip, and colored parts of my pear with it. You should see it in! I applied it to the leaf and around the edges of the pear:

If you click on the photo, you might be able to see the glimmer & shine. I added a clip from the Clips Assortment to hold my sentiment layer in place and added a small flower I created with the Boho Blossoms Punch:

Just cut out 2 flowers and stack them on top of each other with a brad. Curl the edges up on the top layer. Notice the Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine? I colored that myself using a Sponge Dauber and the Lucky Limeade Ink Pad!
