Swirly Bird Birthday

This card was inspired by Tuesday Morning Sketches #546 challenge:
The sketch was pretty straightforward. I wanted it to have lots of white space around the rectangle, so chose to do minimal stamping outside the rectangle.

The swirly design in the center was stamped with Stampin' Up! (SU) "Swirly Bird" set, as was the twig, leaves and bird. The swirly design in the center is SU Soft Sky ink, and the bird is SU Pacific Point.  I fussy cut the bird using paper snips. 

The rectangles were die cut using SU "Rectangle Stitched" Framelits Dies. The swirly green wreath and leaves were die cut using the SU "Swirly Scribbles" die set.

The sentiment was stamped with SU Pacific Point ink using the greeting from SU "Beautiful Bouquet" stamp set.

I'm rating the card difficulty as a "2" out of a possible "5" since the sketch is easy, and the elements are already coordinated in the stamp/die bundle. I think it will make a nice birthday card for someone special!
