This is the finished card using the elements that (hopefully) have already been placed in my gallery.
The pear was colored with Summer Sun and Old Olive Classic inkpads (using spnge daubers and NOT cleaning between stamping). The same colors in pastels (chalks) was used to color the background. The image was stamped on a very vanilla scrap and the panel was edged in Olive classic.
The background was made using daubers and Sun and Olive dye inks. This was layered onto the card which was layered with Elegant Eggplant and Really Rust panels.
The eggplant and rust panels were trimmed with a Krylon gold leaf pen and adhered to a Sahara Sun base.
TFL and ...
ETA: Only the "elements" containing an image was able to be uploaded.
ETA (2/1/07): I chose Elegant Eggplant because it was a coordinating color for both Old Olive and Summer Sun (according to the Color Coach). Really Rust was listed under Summer Sun so I tried it - and liked it. I hope you do too!

Thanks for the clear directions, it helps to appreciate all the time and energy you put into this card. The colors really do work together although I am sure I would never have thought to do it. Thanks for the inspiration.
