Partridge in a Pear Tree

I had forgotten that I had bought this pattern quite a while ago and was pleased to rediscover it in time for this Christmas.  It comes from Form- A - Lines.  A little fiddly but well worth the effort.  I chose to use all sparkly Gutermann Sulky threads and was especially pleased with the effect of not using a green for the leaves. The range of colours by Gutermann  is brilliant.

I used an Artylicious backing paper for the card itself and finished off with a bow from a new purchase - Christmas Paper Bows by Craftwork Cards.
Sadly the beautiful sparkle doesn't show in the photograph as well as it does on the card when it stands in the light from a nearby table lamp.
