Clean and Simple

There's a new challenge today over at Cardmadfairy's Digi Days and this time the theme is clean and simple
Unfortunately my card is not quite as clean and simple as it could be but I like it anyway! I used Jenni's crow stamp made it quite small and copy and pasted it over and over to make a background then reversed the image and printed out a large one. I found the quote on the internet which gave me the idea of sitting the bird in a tree. I know that crows aren't really known for their singing abilities so the quote seemed to fit the image quite nicely!
Can you resist the temptation to layer it up I can't wait to see.
Also entering these challenges for the boys about the boys for the boys bingo always anything goes
