As per my view it is perfect treasure of a gift. Awesome combination of new and old colour.
I like the softness, also it is eye catching photograph.

Contrast colours you use is totally new and really superb work. At first eye, it seems as a real, very hard to believe that it is artificial.

The old box you make new with excellent art. Blue bird is also my favorite, I found your blog from collection of bird 's blog. Using less colour in any art is always beautiful.
