MME Lost and Found 'Breeze' set - part 1

I've been playing with the Lost and Found again......making another gift set.......this time with 'Breeze'......although I love the papers.........I found these harder to work with......they have a male theme to them.......but are quite ornate.......more so than I'd usually use on male cards......so I think these are a bit of a mixture.
Here are the 'vertical' ones.
I don't usually stamp directly onto cards.......too scared of ruining them.......but having seen some gorgeous overstamping on some of Karen's cards.....decided to risk it on one or two.......the little birds just finish it off I think.
 The butterfly was stamped onto a scrap piece.....and then layered on.......and fits into Papertake Weekly Challenge 'things with wings'
 I think this one probably needs a sentiment stamped on to it.
The sentiment on the last one was  stamped on....and it doesn't look so bare!
And many thanks for the lovely comments yesterday on DD1's photo........and shoes!! She doesn't often wear those shoes........at 5' 10"......she really doesn't need the extra height!!

I love the butterfly one - which would be perfectly suitable for the feminine group as well!

Great job. The first and fourth are my favorites. This paper looks like it would be so good for masculine cards.

I was going to ask about the little birds - they are indeed the finishing touch. You have created a really classy masculine look here Jacky :)

I love them all Jacky - and, apart from the handsome sentiment, I think they'd easily be suitable for women too.
