Pear and Partridge card kit day 3!

Hello, friends!




I am back with the third card design from the Pear and Partridge card making kit. Also, like the past three days I have also included my version. These particular stamps that are used for this card are some of my favorites from the set. I just really love the branch. It is something I can use later on. For example I think it is would be adorable with a star hanging from the branch!

First, the version from the kit:


Now my version using the Artiste cartridge.
For my version I did not stamp the ornaments I cut them out with my circut. Also I added the gems to the ornaments. I think this definitely makes them cuter!

Every time I see the title, Pear and Partridge, I think shouldn't it be Partridge and Pear. Why? Because of the song, 25 Days of Christmas! "...Partridge in a Pear tree!..." LOL!

Thanks for the chance to win!
