Vintage Distressed Bird Card With Text Background

This is a card I've just finished making for my first ever card swap. The brief was to make 6 cards the same, using birds plus any distress technique.

The coloured background is a digital image from the very talented Vintage Catnip. I overstamped it with a text stamp. I stamped and embossed a bird plus a bird cage on a punched circle popped with multi dimensional tape. Then it was layered onto card coloured with Dusty Concord distress ink and stamped with postmarks.

I'm a bit nervous sending my cards to other cardmakers for the first time, but hope they like them. Best of all, I get cards back and can't wait to see how others have interpreted the brief.
