Stampin' Up! Picture This and I create a fun Engagement Card

Hi there! I have stamped today, quite a number of things, things I'm not happy with... so I'm not sharing any of those things... instead, I have a really cute and fun Engagement card/Congratulations card for a very in love couple I know...
For this card, I started out with a small card base of 4.25" square of Basic Black, which I have layered a piece of Certainly Celery on and then a piece of Whisper White. On the white, I have stamped the sentiment from Picture This (retired) in Versamark and heat embossed it in Black Embossing Powder. Once it was set, I coloured in the pear in So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Certainly Celery, using my Stampin' Write Markers and a Blender Pen. I drew a border in Basic Black and then added some Glossy Accents to the pear to make it a little shiny... Which I think is visible in this photo...
I am entering this into two challenges, the first is the Less is More Fruit Challenge, and secondly over at Wee Memories CAS challenge. 
I hope to head back into the craft room tonight before bed....
So, until next time....
