Week 19 LIM (card 2)

Here is my second card for this week's
'Less is More' challenge.'One layer card'
again and  'in the frame' is the theme.I always
mean just to make the one card..........but
another always comes along anyway it seems!
We are having a little break away with my
son and his lovely wife from next Sat
( Cornwall) for a week.Renting a lovely
cottage, hope it's sunny.Early celebration for
my 60th and both their 30th birthday's
( all in Aug) & our Ruby wedding
which was in Feb lol.
No internet I won't be making a
card, how will I cope??? Anyway  back to my
second card..............I used my new nesty
as a frame and chalked inside . I stamped a tree
from a set ( details on an earlier card),using
tuxedo black. Then I drew a few birds in the
background using a fineliner pen, & also a little
base for the tree too.Simples!
ps. I may have done fewer birds but I had to cover up
a few ....ahem......little marks!
I have quite a nice little collection of these LIM cards now,
so thanks C&M for starting us on this road. See my cute bear
above for a little thankyou kiss :O) I still love making these
simple cards :O)
