Pear Blossom


The cousins played in the basement until we heard Grandma's voice saying it was time... Time for the Easter Egg hunt! All of us (I think there were thirteen at the most?) would rush up the stairs and head outside to Grandma's yard and begin the frenzied search for the coveted egg that held the dollar bill. Those uncles of ours hid eggs pretty darn well. I don't recall ever finding that egg any of the years.

TiffanyDoodle's has yet another beauty for her Granny's Yard Series, the Pear Blossom. This card involves some colored pencils, clear embossing and distress inks. I hope to have a tutorial soon! The colors were inspired by the Decorative Trim Color Challenge over at Embellish Magazine. I turned some ribbon into clean and simple trim that runs the length of the card.
