Less is More Challenge

Hi Ladies

I have set myself a challenge of entering as many challenges as I can this week. Today I am entering the
Less is More challenge where the theme this week is Neutrals. I usually find the minimal approach very difficult as I like to use layers and embellishments and forget to leave  white space. So today I have kept it very simple and followed the brief and produced this:

I am quite pleased with what I produced. I punched out a circle which I used as a mask and used a Chocolate Chip ink pad to which I lightly applied with a sponge dauber . I then stamped the bird  with the Punch Pourri stampset which is now retired and the branch in black before adding the sentiment in black. The cardstock is vanilla and I have applied glitter to the bird's chest which is difficult to see in this card.
Please come back tomorrow to see which challenge I have found to enter.
