Merry Christmas with birdcage

Okay so i got to play with some new toys for this card.  I'd seen a DT on a Magnolia blog use a birdcage and i loved it..and asked where she purchased it and turns out it was in the UK at a Hobby Centre, i could order them but shipping and all wasn't worth it.  So recently Memory Box came out a with a diecut in two different sizes of Bird cages and both of them are small, but this one was the smallest..and i thought, "Yay", i can make a birdcage card...(Little things like that make me happy!)  Now the deal is i do have a Cricut cart that could cut birdcages too, but i find the metal dies cut the corners and fine details better...especially using glitter paper like i did for this card.  Oh and i used a charm that i ordered from Spoilt Rotten Beads from the UK...awesome by the way!

Here is my card:
