My True Love Gave to Me ... nevermind.

When I heard Independence and Indepent, I thought about the 'empty nest' idea. I didn't want to do a traditional bird from nest design, or parents waving their kids off to college. So I thought about a slightly different take on the empty nest idea. We always hear of the phrase "A Partridge in a Pear Tree". It's the cornerstone of the song for the 12 days of Christmas. Starts the song and ends it. One (the partridge) is dependent on the other (the pear tree) in order to make the perfect first gift from 'my true love'. But, suppose the bird wants to assert its independence and break away from tradition. Here's a design for the bird flying from the pear tree gift. Well...we're always told it was the thought that counts. Drawn in a slightly sketchy, folk art style. Thank you for your vote.

Larger picture of design.


It looks like my comp might have a different color on the bird. I was originally thinking about using a brighter aqua shade. And changed the bird to see how it would look. But, I decided to stick with the shade that I chose for the tree and leaves, but may have forget to click 'undo' when I was making the comp.

Woot has the print-ready file which matches the larger picture above showing everything in the same hue.

Just thought some folks might want to see a larger picture in case their was a question about it.
