Floral thankyou card

It's week 67 over at 'Less is More' & it's the
dreaded one layer card week again.We have to
                Use three stamps
Hmmm I am not a great fan of one layer cards
& I wasted a lot of card this time trying to make
 a suitable card.However I did come up with this
one after a while, not that happy with it but it will
have to do for now. I have another idea now so
will do that later in the week :)
I used a floral and a bird stamp from a set I have
by Kanban called Peacock as it also has a large
peacock in the set too. The sentiment was a 'Jane's
script' stamp again, I often use that set as I find it
stamps more sharply than others I have in various
 sets of stamps. Saying that it didn't stamp so well
this time in this lavender ( Color Box) ink I used
 grrr! I used some pink ( ink it up) ink and a little
 green Promarker on the leaves over the top to
 stamp the flower trail. I used lavender ( Color Box)
ink on the bird stamp. I coloured the bird using
various Prisma pencils and also shaded the
 flowers with pink pencils too.I cut the card shape
using my nesties (curved rectangles ) btw. Hmmm
still not happy but hope it grows on me.
The sun is shining today, how lovely that is for a
 change,I do hope you all have a lovely weekend.
We are babysitting for our grandson Charlie again
next week then Alex the week lucky
 am I :)
