Card with Bird and Brown Colors

I've used a sticker as image - I've had it for ages, before my cardmaking days! So I thought it was time for it to come out of my drawer and onto a card! I like its golden colors and the swirl, and I wanted it to be the focal point, so I didn't want to add any more embellishments than the versatile sentiment - "Just for you" - from a Kanban set. 
I've used kraft for the card base, for the woodgrain embossed circle and the label with sentiment. I've used two design papers and brown paper. All edges are distressed with walnut stain ink.

This card is intered into these challenges:
1) Squiggles and Giggles - Stash Attack
2) Craftymess Challenge - #14 Birds
3) That Craft Place - Things with Wings
4) Clearly Inspired - Things with Wings
5) Totally Papercrafts – Monochrome
6) Scrapbook Sisters - #93 Things with wings
7) Come and Get It Challenges - Adult Birthday Card
8) Challenge Up Your Life - #75 Everything Goes
9) Simply Create Too - Anything Goes
10) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
