Less is More wk 50...Birds

Hello All!
I hope I find you well and managing to stay warm in this decidedly chilly UK weather.
I can`t believe we are on wk 50 of Less is More Challenge. Where has the time gone? It seems like only yesterday I discovered a brand new challenge blog and thought I`d try my hand at CaS. I`ve learnt so much over the last year and made so many new blog friends and, I hope, I`ve improved on my card making skills too.
This week is One Layer week, one that put fear into many a heart not so long ago but most of us have embraced this genre and there have been some amazing entries. Chrissie and Mandi have asked us to make a OL card using birds as our theme, here is mine.
On my first attempt I made a mask and chalked the circle but it turned out pants so I cheated and did one on the computer and did the sentiment at the same time.
The owl is by Inkadinkado from the Birds Galore set stamped in Versafine Black and embossed with clear EP.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  13. Lovely card. The owl sentiment works so well. I made a CAS card using a very small bird as I was thinking that was the only bird stamp I had. You have just reminded me that I also have owl stamps so maybe I could use that for the Less is More one layer bird challenge. Maybe I should make another card.
