Partridge in a Pear Tree!

Sandie has started a blog challenge over at Sandie's Place called 'The 12 days of Christmas Challenge'. There will be a different challenge each day and a small prize at the end for one lucky person who has completed all the challenges - everyone is welcome to enter. Day one's challenge is to make a card with a 'partridge in a pear tree.'



I used a bird and a branch stamp from a Hero Arts set.....I didn't have a pear stamp the right size, so I hand drew one, coloured it gold with a gel pen and cut it out and stuck it on with a glue dot. The cuttlebug folder, I think it's called Birds and Swirls, worked in perfectly with this theme! I used the Technique Junkies Cuttlebug Highlights tech from the Oct 2008 Newsletter.

Other supplies: Stampin' Up Purely Pomegranite cardstock and ribbon (I really love this colour!), green handmade card from my stash and gold paper (Pedigree Paper). The greeting is also by Stampin' Up, I used Nestabilities to cut the circle and scalloped circle.

I really like how this card turned out, hope you like it as much as I do!
