Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #9

Here's a quick post for Dawn's Color Challenge! I'm trying to get it in before the deadline ends! I'll be back later with the detail's!!

ETA:
OK, I'm back! Sorry, It seemed like everything that could go wrong with making this card, did go wrong!! :) I found the design idea from here. When I saw her card it almost had the same colors, so I thought it would be perfect for this challenge! Her card is way better than mine, but hey, I tried! First of all I found a pear on my computer to print out and make a template from, then I realized, I had no black thread! So I ran to the Dollar Store down the road, because I live in a small town, and that is the biggest store we have! :) Just so you know, NEVER BUY THREAD FROM THE DOLLAR STORE!! It is a waste of time and money! But hey, I was desperate! Then I get home and see that the deadline is soon, I don't know what the time change is, but it was 7:00 p.m. here and the deadline was at 9:00 p.m.. I thought the deadline was tomorrow! Well I still had to thread a bobbin and needle, (which took FOREVER), then the thread kept breaking! So I just stitched it with no thread and used a black marker to make faux stitching. So don't look to close, I was in a hurry! Then when I tried to post it, it wouldn't work, so after the third time trying it finally worked. I want to make another card like this one, when I'm not in such a hurry! :) Well I hope ya'll like it!


Supplies:

Paper- My Mind's Eye- patterned paper, SU!- green cs, The Paper Company- black & cream cs

Ink- StazOn- jet black for Thickers

Accessories- Offray- cream satin ribbon, circle punch, pear printed from computer, stitching marks from sewing machine, black marker for faux stitching

Have a Blessed night!

The things we do to get our cards posted in time! Your card looks great -- love the pear and the large letters curving around it, the patterned paper, scallop-edged cardstock, and, yes, the stitching (wouldn't have known it was faux just by looking at my computer screen!).
