One layer birthday card

My niece's birthday is coming up so I needed to make a card. I thought I would try the One Layer timed challenge on the Mod Squad Challenge Blog. I have to admit that I made this more than once. I was hurrying so much that I kept making mistakes!

It took me five minutes to make the card. Most of that time was spent embossing the sentiment and using the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Once I had stamped the branch I needed to place the bird and the wing in the right spot and the Stamp-a-ma-jig helped me do that.

Making a one layer card is harder than it seems so thanks for the challenge. It made me think 'outside the box'.

These are the products I used:
Sentiment: Quietfire Design
Bird and branch: Stampin' Up!
Notes: Recollections
Ink: Versamark watermark; ColorBox Fresh Green and Scarlet; VersaFine Onyx Black
Embossing powder: Recollections Black
Washi tape: Recollections
