Enjoying the detail

It's not very often that i really sit down and spend over an Hour on a card. In saying that i love the detail that you can add when you do really take the time to layer and play and embellish!! So that's what i've been doing today, ready to enter yet another challenge, Colour Challenge #55
The colours were certainly more up my alley, I own a mustard top (put up your hands if you do too??!!) and usually when i do these challenges i like to use stamp sets that i haven't used for a while or ones that i struggle to use (though i LOVE them!!) So it makes it more fun to see what i end up with. I knew when i saw the colours that i wanted to use my "bird on a branch" set. Oh it's so devine and i really need to pull it out more often!!
I've seen a few samples in the SU catty that has the torn, window look so i gave that a go too. Hope you like it and can take away a few ideas for your next creation!!
Thanks for popping by,
