Another Christmas card

The challenge this week at Less is More is FRUIT.  Now like many of us, I'm still fixed in Christmas card production mode, so naturally my thoughts turned to 'and a Partridge in a pear tree'.  Luckily, I own the Stampin' Up! stamp set 'Partridge and Pears', so this is what I created:

Card Recipe:
Image and sentiment:  Partridge and Pears by SU
Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Watercolour pens
Heat embossed with Ranger Platinum embossing powder on watercolour paper
Gold glitter strip and gold sequins


  1. Gorgeous card. The subtle shading makes a world of difference to a stamped image. Great job.

  2. Don't knock yourself Ann, this is so pretty!
    I must admit I scooted along to LIM pretty quick with my card before someone else got there first. As you say I too would rather do something different and not copy someone else's idea. I've had to rethink a few times when I've seen what has already been posted.
    I think yours and mine are sufficiently different to be fine and I suspect that they wont be the only ones this week! :)

  3. great card, i have a real pear tree in my garden but no partridge been it in ever!

  4. Such a brilliant image Ann, perfectly coloured and a perfect take on the challenge this week. thanks so much for playing along this week!
