Canned Pears

Here it is Sunday already!  Wow, the week went by so quickly for me.  But I found time today to check out the Saturday Sketch at the Stamping 411 blog here.  I had an idea when I saw the sketch, but try as I might, it just wouldn't come together.  Even my hubby thoughtfully suggested since it wasn't working, I should pack it in and try something else.  So that's what I did!  I still have lots of components sitting on my table though.  Who knows when they might actually become a card or something else?  Anyway, here's what I ended up making with their sketch.  If you check, you'll see I still didn't end up using the sketch as they showed it, but it's close.  Sort of...  Oh well, maybe next time.

Stamps:   Perfectly Preserved and Pursuit of Happiness
Ink:  Summer Starfruit, Cajun Craze, and Midnight Muse
Paper:   Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla with Orchard Harvest DSP
Accessories:  Big Shot with Cannery Framelits, Dimensionals
I'm still not sure about the colors working together, but I used the DSP herringbone print as my color guide so they should work.  Maybe the prints are too much together, is that it?  Or maybe I just haven't been spending enough time creating lately and my confidence is shot.  Maybe I should go back and stamp some more.  Yeah, think that's what I'll do...  See you later - Sharon
