I'm down to a few scraps of my Mocha Morning Specialty designer series paper, but that's all I needed for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge this week. 
Faith in Nature is a Hostess only stamp set and I have seen so many lovely cards made with that set, but I just hadn't used that set yet.  I knew it would be perfect with the colors in Mocha Morning DSP.  My greeting was too big to use the pennant shape. I watercolored the pear with an Aqua Painter and the lids of my More Mustard and Pear Pizzazz ink pads.
Stamp sets - Faith in Nature (Hostess only)
Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Mocha Morning Specialty DSP
Ink - Early Espresso, More Mustard, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede
Accessories - Scallop Trim Border punch, Neutrals Designer Buttons, Early Espresso 3/8" taffeta ribbon
