On the First Day of Christmas!

There's a super fun challenge over at
Double D Challenges focusing on the
popular Christmas song - Twelve Days of Christmas
which starts of with - On the First Day of Christmas
My True Love Gave to Me and so on...
Check it out Here

This was such a different type of Christmas card for me - 
All the more reason to go with something new.
I so enjoyed making it.

Starting off with all the variety of colours in my
partridge image I went delving into my
DP bits box and came up trumps!
I cut my image from a wonky die then
backed it with some dp that matched his feathers.
The back layers were cut and framed then
adhered to a leaf embossed piece of card stock.
Again I matted it with grey to match up with the DP.
My large leaf flourish is from Kaisercraft and has 
a couple of tiny coloured circles that I added glossy accents to.
The pears, bird beak and eye were also touched up with
glossy accents. Don't you love how the pears just pop!
Sentiment is from Tim Holtz Great Outdoors.
Card base is from Bazzill, matching the colour of the birds beak.

Thanks for popping in
