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:)
