Beautiful Birdcages and Paper Roses

Here is my card for the sketch Kazan's Sketch 54 at 2 Sketches 4 You.  I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do when I first saw the sketch.  But when I learned how to make some of these beautiful little paper roses from Kathy Orta on Youtube, I thought they would look really pretty on this birdcage cut from Straight From The Nest on my Cricut Expression.  I didn't put a sentiment on the card this time because I am not sure of what occasion I will give it....maybe a birthday or thinking of you card, but I thought it might take away from the focal point and I love it just the way it is without a sentiment on the front.
        Cardstock, ribbon, patterned paper, stamp, ink: Stampin' Up!
        Punch: EKSuccess
        Pearl: Creating Keepsakes
        Brad: All My Memories
