M-I-L birthday

It was my Mother-in-Laws birthday recently, and I made her this card..

 I used some new Marianne dies I got recently...
Both the birdcage and the flourish are lovely to cut
and I really enjoyed making this card with them. I used my Marianne bird too..minus the branch.
The paper is from a HOTP kit that I got from QVC a few years ago...
just love that colour paper!
I drew some faux stitching all around the outside edge, 
added some MS punched butterflies and
a few punched flowers.
