And A Partridge In A Pear Tree...fa la la


So....did that put you in the Christmas spirit?

I'm telling you...all these gorgeous new holiday images in the store are certainly helping me along. Of course, when it's time to actually start Christmas shopping I will probably get over it. I DO NOT enjoy shopping (unless it's for craft supplies)!

This new image from Impression Obsession is appropriately called Partridge in a Pear Tree .

I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers. I used my Stardust Clear pen to accent the stars, the bow on the pot, and the pears.

I have NO IDEA what color a partridge is, but mine is blue....just because I wanted a splash of color there! That's allowed, isn't it? LOL!

The green cardstock is Herbal Garden Prismatics, and the red is Classic Red Prismatic . I've gotta tell you, I am LOVING this Prism cardstock!

The ribbon is May Arts sheer with gold edge.

I hope you all had a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

there are so many gorgeous elements on this card, but somehow that tiny blue partridge in the pear tree just drew my eyes in immediately! It's just beautifully done! This card in itself would make a wonderful gift!!
