Love birds

Welcome to our new STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch challenge!

For February the Theme and Sketch are:
For my first inspiration piece I created a card following the theme only. There isn't a lot of stamping on this one, but I just had to use my heart balloon die-cut and, unusually, everything else fell into place as if by magic.

The heart/balloon plays the part of the sun, illustrating the You are my sunshine sentiment on which the (love) birds stand.

For the background I used a piece of White wash Core'dinations (don't you love it when old stash is JUST the thing) sanded, embossed with a heart folder and sanded a bit more to create an ombre look in the sky.

I used Distress inks to finish the balloon-sun and stamped and embossed the Birds of Paradise on the matching die-cuts.

Since I had the White wash pad out I used a piece to die-cut the sentiment.

I hope you like my Valentine card, not classic, but maybe better suited for men who hate pink and saccharine. Look up my teamies' makes on the STAMPlorations blog for more inspiration and do join the challenge, there are prizes to win...
