Cardinal Silhouette cut file

Hi Everyone, a card today featuring the Cardinal bird a freebie this week at the Silhouette store. You know I am not good at the Cameo workings and I am still learning, that's why I have decided to TRY and enter the challenge at
I have used 3 files from the SIL store, the frame, branch and cardinal. I used a  paper template of cardinals and used blending in PS to get my paper as I wanted. I added the green paper and added the sentiment to the shape in the Cameo and used print and cut for the branch and shape. The shape surround and bird was cut from mirror card and the offset was cut from red card. I added plain bird template paper behind them all. Hope that makes sense LOL. After looking at the card on here, perhaps I shouldn't have added markings to the branch? Oh! well, I have learnt a little more about doing things in the Cameo.
