Double Challenges

OK my first challenge last night was 
wherever your inspiration takes you, clean and simple or lots of layers. It's all good as long as we can see the bones of the sketch
this is a challenge SIL Barb found and Nina and I did to 
so here is my card 
Paper used from a sheet of Blue Heron Studios - Calling Card - Serendipity
the solid paper  Brazzill
I love the sentiment I used on the card
now the next challenge I found sort of hard an all white card ...
yes a white card I have to say on my card I did add a bit of color 
it is hard to tell but the paper behind the birds and branches is sparkle 
and I made the birds a light blue
and of course the sentiment in black letters.
well ladies I hope these cards work for the challenges 
Make sure you stop by Barb and Nina and the challenges some awesome cards.
