There is nothing better than

Have you seen the new background stamps designed by {Lesley Langdon}?!?
I LOVE them all and was so excited when mine came in time to make this card for today.

I embossed the pear background in white and then got all inky with my distress inks. 
This is CRAZY messy for me....hehe.
I don't do a lot of techiniques and messy crafting doesn't happen all that often.  And really I know that there are much messier project but I was proud of me for stepping out of my comfort zone a little.  I just really wanted to varying shades around the pear and I'm super happy with the end result.  The distress inks blend so nicely and I really don't play with them enough.
The perfect sentiment is from the
and I thought it would make a super cute wedding card...perfect pear :)
