Die Cuttin Divas Challenge!

Good morning!  It's Tuesday again which means another challenge over at Die Cuttin Divas!  This week was inspired by our gardens!  So we would like to see fruits and veggies on your projects.  My garden is out of control!  Seriously out of control!  I have 11 yellow squash sitting on my counter right now and 6 more ready to be picked.  I have 10 tomato plants (GORGEOUS tomato plants) and none of them have ripened yet!  I am getting impatient...I love tomatoes!

Anyway, I could not think of  a cute card to make with any of the veggies that are completely overgrown in my garden so I came up with card to make for my friend's anniversary tomorrow.  Take a peak :)

I think it came out pretty cute!  It's a standard size card.  I used preserves for the pears, tried making one look 'masculine' and one 'feminine'.  I welded 'what' together using my gypsy and used Lyrical Letters cart.  The word pear came from Just Because Cards.  I loaded the words up with glossy accents to make them stick out a bit.  I added the pearl brad from Eyelet Outlet and used a bronze pearl pen for the corner accents.  Finished it off with some doodling and there you have it!  It was a pretty simple card!  I think it's totally cute and fits my friend's personality perfectly!

Be sure to link up your project for a chance to win a great prize!  Submit your card or layout HERE!
