A couple of challenges

Here is my card for less is more this week, where the challenge is 'Squares', that is to use roughly 25% of the card front, either centrally or a corner. I opted for the top right corner, as that was what the stamp needed! I stamped the bird on a branch, added a few extra leaves and the sentiment (all Stampin' up! A touch of Nature set) in Memento. I coloured it in with promarkers.
I'm also entering this into the Allsorts Challenge where the theme is Things with Wings.
Thanks for looking!

Hi Sally. You've certainly got this challenge off to a tee. I love the idea of just filling a corner, your little bird is perfect. I really must have another go. The weeks just fly by and by the time I think about it another Saturday has passed and the theme has changed.

Very elegant indeed Sally.

Confess I find this CAS style just a teeny bit scary, but as Lisa said, you have it off to a tee.

Thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts this week.
