Happy Bird-day, Tweetie

I've been itching to try my new MFT stamp set and coordinating dies.  there are several family birthdays coming up so this was a good time to break this set out of it's wrapper and give it a try.
No, it does not look like a birthday card on the outside so here is the inside:
I used some of my favorite paper - Heartfelt Creations, Timeless Amour Collection for the outside, fussy cutting two of the roses for the right hand corner.  The punched edge is a Recollection punch. the bird cage is cut out of metalic gold paper.  For the inside I used another piece of this beautiful designer paper.  One of the 12 x 12 sheets is done up in small rectangles so I cut out one of those and then stamped two sentiments and the scroll embellishment in the middle of the circle.  See the little "love" above my mom signature.  That is a tiny stamp from the MFT set Pretty Pockets.
I think the next card I make with this set, I will go more whimsical because the bird lends itself to that.  I tried to make her a little bit more elegant by adding a die cut wing out of the D.P. but probably whimsical would be better.

Have a great day.
