Festive Friday challenge - bird as element: Christmas Wishes

The wonderful Meredith MacRitchie has challenged us to use a bird in our design for any holiday project.  I decided to take some  new products that I recently got and get to creating!
I bought the Love Birds set from someone second hand because those birds are just so cute!  I stamped them repeatedly in Fuchsia ink from Fresh on two imaginary lines and then added the Sew Simple border in Chocolate ink above and below.
I finished the card off with a sentiment from Happy Day in Tuscan Olive ink.  This is a very simple one layer card, perfect for mailing!  I held back from adding any bling or extra 'doodads' ...

Paper: PTI Rustic Cream
Stamps: PTI Love Birds, Sew Simple, Happy Day
Ink: Fresh Tuscan Olive, Chocolate, Fuchsia

OK, I'm coming at these backwards, so this is the third card I've seen from you - you are the Festive Friday queen! I love the unexpectedness of the pink used on this homey card - the 'stitching' is a perfect border! Thanks for playing along with us at Festive Friday!
