Pixie Cottage #44...Sketch/Two Colors Only Theme

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

This weeks Pixie Cottage Challenge is the usual sketch and the theme is a color challenge and you can only use two colors!

Initially I was "thrown for a loop" cause of the color limitations but after thinking it over, I decided on the colors black and white. My image, is one of four new stamps designed by ArTish ( Pick Your Bird) . I used bird"A" the cardinal for this challenge and what I love about these new bird images is the peacefulness and their beauty. I also love the fact that you can make some super quick cards because it isn't necessary to color these images in. I heat embossed my image and added glitter to the leaves for some sparkle. My card was finished within 30 minutes and for me, that is something! I have all kind of ideas running around in my head for future cards using these bird images.
