A Partridge in a Pear Tree

    What Christmas would be complete without a Partridge in a Pear Tree?  Or without that age old Christmas carol, for that matter?   I knew Beccy was close to pitching us another curve ball and today she gave us a sketch.  I love sketches so I jumped right on this one, using Beccy's image! 


Here's the sketch.


     I colored with my ProMarkers, die cut with a die from Spellbinders, and layered it onto another die cut, also Spellbinders.  The red plaid paper was in my stash of Christmas papers.  I added the hand cut sentiment, the Merry Christmas circle and the double bow with a button - hand made with the help of my bow maker.

     See you again  tomorrow with my next Beccy's 30 Days of Holidays card.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

You're doing great keeping up with these challenges NC, I smile every time I read one of your comments about the "curve balls". Love your partridge card, you did a great job with the colouring.
Cheers,
Beccy
