Anniversary greeting

A friend bought several of my anniversary cards (and more) - so I have a gap in my stash!  I struggle to make these cards fairly neutral - not too frilly and not too masculine!  I hope this color scheme is not too somber for a happy occasion.  The stamp is an old one by Endless Creations, and I used some cream colored scraps I have had around for a while - the embossing is on a shiny piece.  The dry embossing and die cuts provide texture.  The bird is a Cheery Lynn die.
