And a Partridge in a Pear Tree

I've decided to get started early on my Christmas cards this year (last year I left it so late that I ended up making everyone a simple, identical card as that is all I had time for!)
This one used the Stampington double cube set - Partridge in a pear tree - which was my favourite christmas song when I was little :-)
The images were stamped using stazon, then watercoloured (and highlights added with gold and white gel pens). Each little image has a very pale blue shimmer watercolour background which doesn't show very well on the photos.
