Faith in Nature with Pizzazz

As I need cards, I find myself striving to use products that will soon be unavailable for purchase. The stamp and the Pear Pizzazz card stock as well as the ribbon on this card will all retire May 31st. I think this card will work for men as well as for women. The stamp set is a hostess set, one of the first products I ordered when this catalog came out last July. I have to admit that I have so many stamp sets that there are many I don't use that often. I wish I'd used this one more.

I stamped the leaf image with Early Espresso Classic Ink but used a blender pen to add the Pear Pizzazz. The Early Espresso will smear a little, so I was careful to ink up my pen frequently and add the color mostly where there was no Early Espresso Ink. Then I went back and filled in a little more, allowing the brown to run into the green a little bit.
