Less is More - week 83 - colour - brown and pink

Love the brown and pink colour combination chosen for this week's challenge at Less is More.
I thought straight away of the cherry blossom tree outside my window which was covered in blossom earlier this year. Sadly, the tree looks a bit sorry for itself after the soggy summer we've just had!
My card this week is a brown tree (Memory Box) with tiny pink blossoms (a very old punch) and two birds (supposed to be magpies!)(Martha Stewart). Sentiment generated on computer and printed out.
Right back to sorting out the bathroom now. It's been painted, but guess who has to put everything back again?!
Thank you for your kind comments last week. I'm afraid I'll not be able to visit many blogs this week. I'm at my daughter's house helping her pack, ready for their house move.

This is lovely Diane... I never would have thought of cutting off the birds from my Martha Stewart birds on a wire punch, but these look great on this tree.
Lovely card.
Thanks so much
