Challenge #170 Fruit Salad at FCCB

Hi! Everyone.  Are you ready for another challenge at FCCB?  Our challenge this week is to make a project with any type of fruit.  Here is my card

The card base is A2 size from "Birthday Wishes" stack from DCWV. I really like this glossy paper and chevrons are in right now.  I cut the pear from Home Accents Cricut cartridge at 3.50". I used the shadow and layer cuts.  I had to piece the layers together after I cut the shapes in four different colors of paper. Brown for the seeds, cream for the fleshy part of the pear and two shades of green for the peel.  I used Euclyptus stickles for the glitter.  The twine is from the Twinery in Honeydew.  The flower and button are from my stash.  To make the sentiment I punched it using a EK success punch and gilded the edges with a gold paint pen.  The sentiment is a stamp from My Pink Stamper and I heat embossed it using Fantage gold from Stampendous.  I love the way it melted.

That's it for my project, now it's your turn.  Make something with a fruit Cricut cut and join the challenge.

Bye, Bye for Now
