Vintage Nightingale CAE - GWS

This is one of my in-between cards.
It's vintage-inspired (like many of my creations)
but not shabby.  It's naturalist but lacks foliage and other
embellishments.  It's clean-edged but a little too layered for CAS.
I might call it freestyle but it doesn't really strike me as a collage
because it lacks the mixed media elements.
I call it Clean-and-Eclectic,
but whatever it is, it is.
Here are the challenges:
This time I took some inspiration from Jeanette (DT):
I love her kraft tones and the green polkas together.  I don't have Robyn's Fetish
images as she does (and really my style is not often cute),
but thinking about robins (and their type) led me to this
