The Birds


For the Less is More Challenge its 12 days of Christmas don't ask me how but I found myself on Wikipedia reading about the history of the song. I discovered that four calling birds were actually Colly Birds and that were blackbirds so now you can see the inspiration for my card. I was also inspired by Birgit who makes the amazing CAS card.
The sentiment which was a lucky find with my Simon Says Stamps For the Record set.
Now for the senior moment just realised the LIM challenge is for one layer cards but to the drawing board then.
