OCC - 12 Days Of Christmas!

Jenny Gropp, who is One Kraft Kat, came up with a FANTASTIC Inspiration Challenge for Our Creative Corner this week!! We are to use the song 12 Days Of Christmas as our source of is a 'break down' of the song!

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me...
Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtledoves,
And a partridge in a pear tree!

I decided to start from the beginning and go with the 'Partridge in A Pear Tree'...even though it's A Bird in a Flourished Nest of Snowflakes!!

I think my choice of colors may have been inspired by last weeks SCS Color Challenge (Black, Suede, and Vanilla) Even though I didn't play in the challenge, I really love the idea of these colors for a Holiday card! (I didn't use black either!) I think this will be the card we give to the kids' Piano teacher!

Please join us in today's Challenge and be sure to link your creation back at the OCC Blog using Mr. Linky! If you upload to SCS use Keyword OCCC!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!
