A change for you or should that be me? lol

Hi guys, I felt like a change from stamping the other day and I'd just received this adorable bird cage die from Teresa at my crafty heart and wanted to use it as a main focal point,
I usually use some of my dies as accents behind things and will probably use it this way too later,
I've used some gorgeous papers from the Prima Tea Thyme pad OMG they are gorgeous!! I love them!!!
the little tag effect on the top left was made by cutting into one of the designs in the pad,
to finish off the distress look I machine sewed my papers and distressed the edges with my distress tool,

I tried to achieve a soft vintage look, has it worked? or maybe I shouldn't have asked lol
