Serendipity - Pears!

 Serendipity Stamps is having a Blog Hop to show off their spring release!  The lovely pear above comes in a stamp AND die!  For this card I die cut it in gold paper.  I always associate gold with pears.

Here you can see some of the detail.  The frame is made from Labels 28 dies.  Finished size is 6 x 4 1/4.

My next card is made with the pear stamp.  Versafine Spanish Moss is a great color for pears!  I added a bit of bling in the corners to make it fancy.
The finished size is 5 1/2 by 4 3/4.

If you leave a comment on each of the Design Team's blogs you'll be eligible to win the pear stamp and die and matching sentiment!

You will have until Friday, May 3 to leave comments. The winner will be announced on the Serendipity Stamps Blog page on Monday, May 6!.
