City Crafter 277

Hello and Happy September!

Marina is our host this week at City Crafter Challenge
and the theme she has picked is "In a Jam"


 Create a project that features Fruit and/or a Jam Jar (mason jar)

I made this card for some friends who recently celebrated their wedding anniversary


Truthfully I am not one for using fruit on cards  - I could have opted to use a jar but hey, it's a challenge... I cut the pears and leaves on my Cameo and then used distress paints to colour them


The paper I used - Basic Grey I think - is some that I've been hoarding... I love the colours


Our Guest Designer this week is winner of challenge 269 Katarzyna Rossa aka Moje Hobby Click on the link to go visit her blog
Once again CCCB are offering a GD spot to this week's winner so I hope you'll be inspired to join us -

Have a lovely day my friends

I think it's pretty pearfect :). And this color palette is gorgeous; I LOVE shades of blue paired up with green. These pears look so real!
Speak soon; sending love!

Fun card with the 'pear' fect sentiment x Loving the distress effect, the colours and the layout. Clever idea to use the patterned blue paper for the leaves, works so well. You might have preferred a jar but the Pears are gorgeous x

Barbara said...

I have to say it again: how lovely! The sentiment is adorable and I love how you staged it! (I hope that is an expression that can be used in this context...)
