Less is More week 50-one layer

This weeks challenge from Chrissie and Mandi is a one layer card and the subject is

So no layers and minimal embellishments. For once I had a couple of ideas that came together quickly and are definitely CAS!

My first image is from Vintage Catnip and it was a sheet of various birdcages from which I chose one I liked and digitally added a little bird to it. I then shaped the sentiment around the handle and coloured the image with PM's. I added the little bird from SU Everything Eleanor. I punched the opposite corners and added a contrasting paper behind to give definition to the card. I added three silver dots to the other corners.


This one was a freebie from Cuddly Buddly crafts which I coloured with PM's and added a sentiment. I embossed lines top and bottom and marked some faux stitching. Chrissie and Mandi have some wonderful ideas on their blogs and there are lots of submissions on the challenge site to whet your appetite, so why don't you have a go:)
Many thanks for visiting, your comments are much appreciated.

These are both great Valerie, I do admire your PC skills!
The second one took me back to when I was a designer for Cuddly Buddly... it seems for ever ago now!It's a cute image and perfect for a New Home card.
Thanks so much

Oh the dreaded one layer card - you've done really well with these two and that is a cute image on the second one. I seem to be able to stamp perfectly on bits of card for layering but the one layer jobs usually end up messy - why I wonder!! S***'s law I guess.

Both are fantastic Val but the first is a real stunner! I love the sentiment and the way the extra bird on top of the cage overlaps it slightly. The hint of DP at the back is great too. Hope you're having a lovely weekend! Vicky x
