I wish....

.....someone was sending me one of these!!!! (A 'new home' card that is not a birdie in a cage!)

Once again it's almost mid week before I am managing to post my Less is More card.
This week the challenge was 'Seeing Double' and it had to be a one layer card.

I really liked these bird cages from My Grafico and the sentiment (from TLC) I think is a perfect one for wishing someone well in their new home. 

The teeny birdie is a Papermania stamp stamped in Onyx Black Versafine ink and I edged round the card with a pink gel pen then a black liner to 'frame' the image.

I was undecided about the pink pearls but threw caution to the wind (LOL) and glued them on.. of course once they're stuck that's it, you can't change your mind!

Overall, don't think it looks too bad in real life - but I'm sorry about the pic.....!
