Perfect Pear

This one was a slightly unusual request for a Valentine's card with a fruit and/or veg theme for a green grocer.  I thought straight away  of this fab freebie from Birdie Brown, which I coloured with my Promarkers.
 The papers are Papermania, Forever Friends, to which I've added some pear green pearl card.  I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page set to make the heart border, and matted it onto white linen cardstock.  The sentiment was a freebie along with the image, I think it's really cute.  I've finished off with some green satin ribbon, a large double bow, red shimmer dome hearts, and some green gems.  There's also a romantic poem on the inside of this one, but that's for the eyes of the recipient only!
