Heart 2 Heart - Jan 19 Color Challenge

This card was made for the Heart 2 Heart Jan 19th Color Challenge.  My Birth month is December and the Color Ponderosa Pine.  Again I am a first time player, but have submitted other January challenges.  For this challenge I used Ponderosa Pine cardstock, and selected CTMH "Pear & Partridge" Paper in which the darker green in this particular paper had a real close match to the Ponderosa Pine.  For the contracting color I used another paper from the same paper pak.  The center doily I had die-cut some time ago and never used.  From another scrap I was able to cut out a couple of the tree branches (flairs), leaves and partridge from the same paper and used thin foam tape to pop it up.  Added Sentiment from Stamp Set C1525 Pear & Partridge, and Gold Sequins finished the card off.  This could also be submitted for the Jan 5th Challenge "Old is New", but had already made a scrapbook page for that challenge.  Go to the Heart 2 Heart Challenges and see other beautiful papercrafting...January is still open for all their challenges. 
"Pear & Partridge" CTMH was one of my favorite Holiday Paper Paks which I used for my Christmas Cards three years ago.  Back a couple weeks ago when my daughter and I were scrapping I saw that she had the Pear & Partridge Cardmaking Workshop and I had to have it for next Christmas...so, it lives on, not retired for me.
