A Partridge in a Pear Tree – by Deb Saaranen

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a partridge in a pear tree! Oh my — Deb’s card for today fills my head with song. That song is truly a Christmas classic and The Twelve Days of Christmas collection by Graphic 45 so beautifully captures the images from that song in gorgeous, vintage styling. I’ll show you all the sheets further down so you can see for yourself. Deb’s card today is a no stamp creation.  She merely capitalized on the images and words on the sheet she chose, added lush/vintage ribbon and called it good!  And GOOD it is!!!  Take a look:


So much eye candy here as we take in each and every beautiful image and detail.

You can see Deb’s post on her blog here.
