Perfect Fall Pears

Today's post is for The Paper Players challenge #109 "Paper Piecing". For my card I used a few of the new items in the Holiday mini: the "Perfectly Preserved" stamp set and "Framelit Dies" to match, as well the "Friendship Preserves" stamp set.  Here's my card. 
It's really hard to see the jar in the photo, but I also shadowed it with some baja breeze ink. I die cut some extra pears and the jar top and covered with "International Bazaar" DSP and "Spiced Cake" fabric for the piecing elements.

The pears use both the DSP and fabric and 
fabric on the lid, then tied with some bakers twine. I popped both  the pears and jar lid with dimensionals. 
I stamped the sentiment with Friendship Preserves stamp and popped it up as well. 

Here's a peek at the inside. 
Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment.

Happy Fall is in the air with this card Di. So many details, love the fabric jar top, & twine so realistic looking, the woodgrain background is perfect too & the little pears! Good luck in the challenge.

Your card is so cute Diane. It certainly spells fall. I love what you did with the inside as well. Your jar with the lid is so cute. Don't have this set and I am telling myself, I just don't need it, I just don't need it LOL

So many cute little elements here, Diane! Love the fabric on the pear and jar lid and the way you finished off the inside too! So glad you could join us at The Paper Players!

This is so pretty and unique with the choices of DSP and fabric.

Such a fun card, Diane! I love all of the patterns and the pieced details. I have to echo Nancy and Karen above....this card just makes me think of Fall. As always, I love the added detail of the finsihed inside, too. Thank you so much for playing along with my challenge this week at the Paper Players! :)

I hated the 'pear' theme stamp set in the catalog. Yet seeing it demonstrated here makes it looks so appealing! well done :)
