Roses and Pears

Beccy's Place is the sponsor of the Paper A La Mode Thanksgiving Challenge at the Outlawz, and I was lucky enough to be provided this gorgeous Roses and Pears image.  I colored it brown since I love brown pears and they seem to fit Thanksgiving better.



I loved playing with this image - it is soooooo pretty!  I printed it if off a few times so I could add in some layers.  I also added in some little sprigs I made with the Martha Stewart Branch punch and I pulled apart a pretty little sparkly thin flower out of my stash and tucked the pieces in the back for some glitter. I colored  thus up with some Copics, some SU! Alcohol Markers, some colored pencils, and some Tim Holtz Distress inks and sponges.  My sentiment is from DRS Designs and is called Thanksgiving Blessings.  My bg is a free vintage image from Knick of Time (love that place - wow!), but I found the link to it on this unbelievably cool Pinterest Board put together by Becca Feeken (it has thousands of links to great vintage printables). 

Many hugz!!!

  7. This is just stunning with that bouquet of flowers, fruits and greens! I love the vintage background and noticed the 4 digit phone number! It made me laugh, because I still remember our old phone number growing up! It was 3 digits with a letter! LOL

  16. Okay, but this stunning creation is not a card, is it, Nancy? It's a centerpiece for the Thanksgiving table, right? It is going to be gorgeous there and so much prettier than a tissue-telescoping turkey - although there's nothing wrong with those! We've had ours for a couple of decades now! Happy Thanksgiving!
