Evening all and what a lovely day it's been.
 I even managed to enjoy the air conditioning at work!!
I have been experimenting again and here's the result...

The paper is a scrap from somewhere! The sentiment comes from a lovely set by Pink Petticoat. The little birdie is from a Marianne Designs set and the black seam binding from my stash.

I was inspired by these challenges

House of Cards Month One - Photo inspiration
ABC38 - Use up scraps
Country View Crafts #6 - Quotations and Sayings
Crafty Ribbons #55 - Use one or more circles (1 plain circle, 1 scalloped circle)
Just for Fun #1 - Anything Goes

Thank you for coming to see what I have been up to. xx

What a great simple card. The two bottom rounded corners really do alter the look to the card. Lovely backing paper and I adore the little bird on the ribbon. Lovely.

I hope you will keep popping back and joining us in our future monthly challenges.
