Thinking of You

A 'Thinking if You' card today to go into my box of ready-made cards.  The Less is More Challenge this week is 'Yellow & Grey'. It's not a pair of colours I often think to use together, but I remembered a patterned paper pad I have with yellow, grey and black papers.  I decided on a yellow and grey paper with bird cages.
I covered the card blank front with pale yellow card.  In a piece of white card, slightly smaller than the card blank, I die cut a circle and attached the patterned paper behind the aperture.  I die cut a frame using a MFT 'Stitched Circle Scallop Frames' die and attached it over the top.  The bird is from a Joy! Crafts  'Lin & Lene - Birdcage + 3 birds' set of dies.  The sentiment is an old wood mounted stamp, which was stamped in Versafine 'Smokey Grey'.

I am joining in the following challenges:
