Tuesday Trigger ( Partridge in a Pear Tree)

Here is the latest installment of Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger
The photo is from Crate and Barrel.  
Isn't this a sweet image? The colors are so soft and muted. I also love the embroidery for the borders. Since I don't have a stamp or image of the Partridge in a Pear Tree, that still didn't stop me from taking the challenge. So I look through my stash and came up with a Hello card.
you brighten my day
The flower ( from this set called Lauderale Floral ) and leaves were embossed in white and then colored with light copic markers. The metallic border for the flower was glazed over with Silver Liquid Pearl Dimensional Glue. I used a piece of silver Washi Tape and stamped the sentiment over. I am glad to have this little exercise from the Trigger to help me to get a little creative. I need a break from making Christmas cards! Hope you are getting your errands done before the holiday. My family and I will be spending Christmas at brother-in-law's place near Philly! I am so looking forward to it.
