My Craft Spot Challenge #47 -For The Birds

Hi everyone! It's Monday and time for another challenge over at My Craft Spot blog. This week's challenge is *For The Birds*. The only requirement is, your project must include a bird on it somewhere. Sounds fun! Here is my card:
I made a couple of *just because* cards. The hen is
from the Country Life cartridge on page 43, cut at
2.75 ". The *Thinking of you* sentiment is from the
Sweet Sentiments set #1 by My Craft Spot. I added
a vintage cherry twine bow. I inked the edges and
stitched around the border with my sewing machine.
I cut extra layers of the tail feathers and wing so I  could
add some dimension by bending the edge up.
I hope you take part in this week's challenge and link up a picture of your project on My Craft Spot blog. I look forward to seeing all of your wonderful creations. :)

I have more to share this week including my Valentine's Day recap. Better late than never.
