Partridge In A Pear Tree

Hello again its cardmaking week and theres no stopping me lol,I thought this one would make a good male christmas card.I have put pictures of the inside and back of this one too so you get the feel for the whole card.
The stamps used are Partridge in a pair tree from creative expressions and there are 3 different pears in this set plus a large one so I used the three smaller ones and masked them before adding the partridge to the front.The leaves are also in the set which are great for framing an image,I then stamped my greeting and thought it would be nice to follow the foilage into the inside of the card.For the back I have used a martha stewart punch and stamp my created by stamp in the middle.
Do you like it.

Watch a movie at that time???? Why am I not surprised?? Hope it wasn't a scary one. Anyhow love the card - super with the leaf stamping around the edge & the colours are quite delicious. Hope you've had a good weekend.
