Pretty pears

      My sweet friend, Kim Lackenbach, a LONG time bloggie friend, asked me if I would like to join in the 50th challenge celebration for Inspired By All the Little Things.  Of course I said yes.  LOL  Here's the lovely inspiration photo for the celebration challenge.

     The pears grabbed my eye and I knew just what stamp set I was going to use.  Unfortunately, it is no longer available, although thankfully Marcella Hawley is still designing beautiful stamp sets for her own company, Power Poppy.
     I colored the image and frame with my Copics and added sparkle to the frame with a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.

Copics Used:
pears E31, E53, E55, YR31, YG11
stems E74
leaves YG21, YG23, YG25, YG17, YG67
flowers  RV10, R20, R14, Y17

     Hope you'll find some time to play along with this great challenge.  Thanks so much to Kim for asking me to join in the fun.
