I went a bit more elegant on the card for today. Nothing says fancy like gold embossing! I kept it a bit homespun with the patterned paper background and the sweet sentiment font.
I created the red background by blending Festive Berries Distress ink on white cardstock and sprinkling some pearly water on it. Then I stamped the pear tree repeatedly with Festive Berries for a tone on tone look. A bit more sparkly gold was added in addition to the embossed image with dashed lines using a Spica gold pen.
