One layer birds!

The theme for the challenge at Simply Less is More t( week 50) is a : 
ONE LAYER CARD 
with the subject of 
BIRDS 


Well  at last a challenge where I can use a card I've made previously and what good timing! My husband was admitted to hospital last night and I may not have time to make a card! 
Sorry if  this is a little on the dark side. It was a night time photo as I recall. 
I've simply placed my distress ink pad on the paper to create the background and then masked the edges and placed the birds on top. They are embellished with glossy accents which you can't see in the photo.
The sentiment is from Gina K Designs.


Thanks for looking!
