Little birdie!

Good morning! Urghh, monday's out the way, the less said about that the better - I'll just get straight to my card! I haven't joined in with a Sugar Bowl challenge for ages, and I'm not really sure why! But then this fortnights challenge was Clean & Simple so I thought I'd have a go! I'm quite pleased with it except stamps don't seem to like linen texture card so I had to redraw (a bit shakily) over the bird cage! But on the good side, my friend thought I had drawn it from scratch - so that's not too bad! :-)
Here's the challenges it's for-
The Sugar Bowl - this sketch and Clean & Simple
Basic Grey Challenge - Wings
Top Tip Tuesday - Birthday
Less is More - Pastel colours
Thanks for looking - see you soon!
Happy Pancake day!
Supplies-
Images - 'Fly Free' by Leanne Ellis @ Sugar Nellie
Colouring - Copics
Papers - Core'dinations & Basic Grey 'Porcelain'
Sentiment - Elzybells
Pearls - Hero Arts

Gorgeous card Beth.
I do love these Leanne Ellis images and you've coloured her so prettily.
The bird cage looks great to me and I wouldn't have known you'd had a problem if I'd not read it.

Thank you for playing in the Sugar Bowl Challenge, and we'll hope to see you again soon.
Love Elaine xx

PS I love the photo of your cat drinking from the loo, one of ours does exactly the same thing xx

I like that your papers, stamp and the little cage all tie in so well together. Your colouring is fab too! x
