Hey Chickie!

Single layer cards are the order of the day at Sentimental Sundays this week (+ a sentiment).  As I won 4 images from Bugaboo I thought I'd use one of those.  This was a really quick card as the image was already coloured :D  I did add hand draw/colour the branch though (I really thought I was going to mess the card up but it came out better than expected). I just finished off with a couple of pearls & some embroidery thread.  I've gotta keep this brief cos we're just in from a very bracing walk along the seafront & hubby is waiting for me to snuggle up on the sofa & watch a movie (& I could really do with a cuppa).

The challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Things With Wings
Southern Girls - Winged Things
Open Minded Crafting - Up In The Air
Eureka Stamps - Birds of a Feather
Crafty Boots - Add a Sentiment
Creative Craft Cottage - Include a Sentiment
QKR Stampede - Critters

Here is my original card, but realised it not strictly single layer lol

 Thanks for looking & enjoy the rest of the weekend & have a great week! xx

Two great cards, I would find it so hard to make a single layered card, my fingers itch to add layers but your card looks fabulous with no layers. Thank you for joining in the fun at Crafty Boots Challenges.
