LIM week 50 - one layer, birds

The challenge over on Less is More this week is for one layer and birds. I am not a big fan of birds, but I did find that I had sets of stamps with a bird luckily.  I've used one of my new embossing folders for the basis of this card. I then added some birds from a tree stamp set and a sentiment stamp I won and have not used before. I added a touch of green perfect pearls to the embossed leaves to make the card less stark.
I'd also like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Crafty Catz challenge- use something new
Crafty Cardmakers challenge- no flower embelisments
