And a Partridge in a Pear Tree?

So when The Alley Way Stamps Blog put this picture up as inspiration...

it took me all of three seconds to figure out what I wanted to do. I don't know why I immediately thought of Christmas but there you go. When I found a partridge in a pear tree image in their freebie section, it all came together in my head. And paired with this sketch from Mojo Monday...

this is the card I came up with. I wish now that I had used a pear instead of that gray circle but oh well.

For the card front, I used black and white cardstock with SU's Green Galore (embossed with the snowflake Cuttlebug folder), Yoyo Yellow, and Basic Gray. I printed the image from my computer onto Neenah Solar White cardstock. I knew I wanted to color it with my Copic markers. In real life, partridges are brown with black and white striped wings and a bright orange beak and feet. But this isn't real life is it? :)

I am also entering this card on The Pink Elephant Blog's (TPE217) 'digi image'.

Thanks for looking! Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
