365 Cards: Fun With Food Challenge

It's Wednesday and that means it my design day at 365 Cards! Today's challenge is to use food... specifically FRUIT on a card. In my case I chose to use it AS my card. Here she is...





I just want to say, it was SO fun making this card! I folded some scrap paper in half and sketched my pear base. Then did the same with the 1/2 pears (as I like to call them) the seeds and top. I traced all the parts and then cut them out, being sure to keep the base on the fold. 

I am trying to figure out how to make this into a PDF so I can share it with any of you who may be interested, but it may take a bit. I am so I.T. challenged its amazing I can even blog. Hopefully my dear husb will be willing to sit with me and figure it out.... or just do it for me ; ) Please let me know if its something you are interested in and I will get on it ASAP!
Anyway. I added my new Hero Arts sentiment to a tag and finished it up.

I decided to add a nestability embossed circle to the inside for some writing. I had originally wanted to stamp inside it, but I felt it would take up too much room, so I left it out.

I hope you find some time today to join in our challenge! You can add fruit to your card in so many ways. Stamps, designer paper, or make a shape. It's so much fun! PLUS today we have a guest designer, so be sure to check that out! And don't forget to link up your creation at 365 Cards. I love seeing what you create from these fab challenges. It's such a highlight!
Thanks for joining me today. I hope to have another nifty-gifty to share with you later, so check back. 
Thanks for visiting today!

Just wonderful, I have a passion for pears, I've always thought I liked it because I am more shaped like an apple, but maybe I'm over thinking a bit :)

Wonderful challenge, I may have to play later.
