A little birdy

A few days ago I was asked for a 'get well' card for a male and all I had in my pile were 'girly' cards.  I racked my brains trying to think of what to use and decided on these nitwit stamps, which came free with the Simply Homemade magazine.
I'm not convinced though - is this still too girly??



I paper-pieced the stamps and added buttons to the tree. It took me longer to choose these buttons than it did to make the whole card!!
