Very, very pretty colors this week for our Color Challenge at Create with Connie & Mary. I'm a great lover of anything black and add both of these fabulous colors in the mix and you have a great combo!

Here's my card for this week's challenge:

The "Partridge & Pears" stamp set is one of my favorites from the Holiday Catalog. You can pretty much use this stamp set for any occasion or holiday. Although the sentiments that are included are Christmas-y, I added a sentiment from the stamp set "For All Things" and turned this into a fall or Thanksgiving card:

I colored the image using my Stampin' Write Markers and cut the shape using my "Labels Collection Framelits Dies". I even fussy-cut one solo pear to add to my sentiment layer:

Please make sure you visit my teammates at Create with Connie & Mary and let's see what you can do with this color combo!
Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!


  1. What a great idea to make the tree into an Autumn tree! Makes me think of the Bartlett pears I am enjoying this time of year. Yum! I love how you added some bling to accent the pears.

  2. Love this.......takes a totally different vibe in fall colors!

  3. I never would have thought of this stamp to be anything but Christmas. What a great idea! Love the fall colors on the tree! Just beautiful!!

  4. What a fun use for this stamp! Love it in the fall colors.

  5. Gorgeous card! I love how you colored the pear tree. I especially love the little rhinestones added to the pears, so sweet!

  6. Love the coloring...I'm wanting to get a chance to play with that set! Great job with the color challenge!
