An aqua bird?

Hello crafty people, lovely to see you here,:0) Just a quick post today for LIM and OLW. This has to be a good day it's the first time I've combined my entry for these very special challenges. LIM is I year old this week, Happy Birthday to LIM and OLW is at Jennifer's for the first time this year :0)
My offering is a one layer card with a bird for OLW and in aqua for LIM.
I used Basic Grey, Aviary stamps and Hobby Art sentiment and flowers.
Thank you for stopping to look and now I'm off to do a little peeking myself, TTFN X
p.s Click on the links above to take you to the challenges where all will be explained !
