Design a Quick & Simple Penciled Pear Card

Design a Quick & Simple card with the Penciled Pear Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty (1)

WHAT I LOVE! The Stampin’ Up! Countryside Corners die collection offers six different sizes of octagons (plus a mini flag die). They are proportioned to “nest” when you layer and formed the focal point for my pretty pear.
