Here is the card I made with this set.

I colored the pear with copics.   I used a  3D crystal lacquer pen on the berries.
The die I used is Devine Eleoquence and I only used the edges instead of the whole die to give it a totally different look.  The ribbon is seam binding and I tied the bow using a fork. 

Enjoy the hop and come back again soon.

Here's the Design Team:

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.


  1. Beautiful card; love the dimension on the berries.

  2. Lovely card, Shirley! Your little bow sets off the focal panel very nicely.

  3. Such a pretty image and a very elegant card. Thank you for the inspiration Karen P

  4. I love how you brought out the pear's color in your BG DP, and the edges of the die you used look great, as does your wonderful fork bow! Hmmm, a "lacquer pen", huh? something new to look for!! Fabulous card!!

  5. Ooooh - so pretty and elegant! Your bow is perfect - I need refresher course on fork ribbons and clouds! The pear is beautifully colored and especially elegant with the die behind - wow!

  6. Beautiful. Love the die cut frame and the 3-D Berries.

  7. Love the pop of red with your beautiful ribbon! Very pretty card and design!

  8. Beautiful and I love how you have the berries and leaves throughout the pear:) TFS

  9. I love the pop of red on your card and the die cuts are a perfect touch!
