Less is More 50..One Layer BIRDS

I made a card for Less is More's challenge...to make a one layer card with a bird/s on it. I made a couple cards, that I don't have the courage to put up....this challenge was tough!!  I LOVE Less is More, so I persisted in my attempt to make at least one card that I could put up. I LOVE  clean and simple, as well, but one layer cards can be challenging....challenging enough  by themselves, but when you add birds to the criteria..well, next to impossible for me!!   I'm just saying...   This card, though, I feel just ok about, but don't hate...
Made with a stamp from Memory Box and sentiment from Hero Arts.  Used a couple nesties and embossed...sponged with Memento ink(Summer Sky) while masking. The card is 4 1/4" square.   Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
