On the first day...

.. of Christmas my true love gave to me... Come on, sing along - I know you know the words!

I bet you can tell where the inspiration for this card came from :)

Not too much fuss here, so the details will be short. The pears are from the Fruitful set from PTI. I inked them up with Spring Moss and then tapped a bit of Ripe Avocado to the one side. The bird is a die-cut from the Birds and Blooms Sizzlit Die (Stampin' Up!). Some flourishes from the Fancy Flourishes were stamped on the bird and also behind the pears for a bit of a 'branch'. The patterned paper is from the Holiday Vintage Prints pack. The ribbon is Scarlet Jewel and was adhered with glue dots. I have never been able to quite get the ribbon frills like this to look good. I need to practice!

Great to see you today, hope you'll stop by again! Take care!
