A little different...

I tried something very different with this card and not really sure I like the result but I thought I would post it anyway!  I think I need to start a card wrecks version of cake wrecks for my not so wonderful results.  Anyway,  I was inspired by 2S4Y 32 to try a different style on this card that I going to be giving to my sister for her birthday.  I love this paper from SU! (Good Morning Sunshine, now retired) and used that along with a Rubber Stampede stamp I had purchased last year from Michaels on clearance.  I wanted to try to do something with a combination of stamping (the pear) with cut DSP.I stamped on watercolor paper and colored with reinker and aquapainter.  The pears on the vine are just cut out from the DSP.
 I added some micro bead accents to the pear, and mounted it on a Technique Tuesday tile I covered with DSP.  I also added a dew drop to the pear on the vine.  This is just layered with other DSP and accented with Papertrey ribbon (one of my few lonely PTI items..oh I wish I had more!)

I left the inside blank so I can write something to try to explain why I am fashionably late with her card. I am also making something to go along with this, just have not decided what ~!  I will probably post that tomorrow.  Happy Friday!
