Partridge in a Pear tree

This is my card for two challenges, Papertake Weekly challenge which is a sketch and Creative Card Crew which is ribbon and gems. The background tree is a Katzelkraft stamp which I've stamped onto Basic Grey paper using Ocean Depth Versamagic ink and I've then used a Inkssentials white pen to highlight certain bits of it and then added the gems. The text and pears are both from a Paper Artsy set of stamps. The pears have been shaded with Pro Markers and one of them has been covered with Glossy Accents. I've sponged Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint around the edge of both and then mounted them onto Basic Grey paper.

I think you can just see the Glossy Accents on the above photo, it wasn't quite dry which is why it isn't shining as much as it should.

Well I'm hoping I've set this post up correctly as we are in our cottage in front of the open fire somewhere in Yorkshire.

Thanks for looking
