Vintage Partridge !

This is my card for the following challenges :

The main image and the text are from a Paper Artsy set of stamps. I stamped the bird with Memento black ink then shaded with Pro Markers. I stamped the words over the background card and the bird piece of card to give a little dimension. The background card has ben stamped with one of the pears in Antique Linen Distress ink and I've sponged Distress ink around the edge and also Adirondack Cranberry ink. The vintage paper is a download from Miss Cutie Pie, if you like your vintage images then you must visit this site ...they are gorgeous ! The Christmas ticket is also a download from the same site. I must say a big thank you to Sheila (aka ManicStamper) as I found the link to this wonderful site on Sheila's blog.

The pears were also stamped with black Memento ink and shaded with Pro Markers. The snowflakes are punched from some inked card using a Martha Stewart punch. I cut the pears out and added Glossy Accents to one of them, I also added a dot of GA to the bird's eye.
Sorry no blog post last night but we went into the village as it was the official switching on of the lights. They'd got a snowmaking machine this year which added a little to the atmosphere. I always think that once the lights in the village have been lit the Chrismas season has arrived. I'd better start thinking about doing some Christmas shopping now !
Thanks for looking
