Bird & Branches JustRite Challenge

Hi all, hope you are well and thank you for stopping by.
Today I have a card for the JustRite 'Vintage - Masculine' challenge. Well, I'm not sure if my card will pass for a vintage card.  I have quite a collection of JustRite stamp sets, but unfortunately I don't have any masculine ones.  They are quite difficult to find here in the UK.  So I used stamps from several different JustRite sets, and I'm hoping my card is acceptable...
I used cream card stock throughout, and added a layer embossed with Spellbinders Flora folder.  I cut the bottom of my card with Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallop die, and then stamped with one of the JustRite Classic Lace Edge (Two) stamps.  These stamps coordinate with the Spellbinder dies I used.
I used the following stamps from JustRite...My label is from the Always & Forever set.  My bird is from Spring Rose Medallions set, and my sentiment from Kindness set.  I added some bird design ribbon, green gems, and leaves cut on Cameo. Bird and leaves were coloured with PM's.  Finally, I added a sweet little bird cage which is from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
I don't have a dad any more, so this will be given to my lovely husband on Fathers day, as he loves to feed the many birds that visit our garden.

I would also like to enter my card in to the following challenge...
Thanks again for stopping by xx

Another stunning card Sasha, and the bird theme is perfect for Father's Day. Love how you use the Just Rite stamps - they give such a professional finish with the Nesties.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my Swirly card - I have had my HOTP stamps such a long time I can't recall where I bought them, but I also have the Christmas set and the Swirls set, as well as the everyday sentiments. I love them.
Hugs, Sylvia xx
