My first challenge

I am really excited about this project. It turned out exatly the way I wanted it to.
I decided to challenge myself.  I went through a few blogs and found a challenge "Stuck on u sketches" .  The challenge is:
May 18 -  Fruit Die Cut Challenge   
The challenge is to just make a paper craft using a fruit cut. I had a lot of different ideas at first. THEN  I remembered I had gotten the most adorable ribbon from Michael's  $1 bin, it had pears on it. I knew I wanted to use a pear cut.
I recieved my first set of Tim Hotlz distress inks and was VERY excited to try them out. This is what I came up with.

I am so proud of how this project turned out. I would love to hear what you think.
