From the Heart

Happy Saturday!
I picked up this adorable image from a company called From the Heart Stamps.
I had not heard of them until I saw an adorable card that one of my cyber-pals, Stephanie, created.  She didnt' use this image, but a few days later another of my cyber-friends, Lola, did! I couldn't resist the cute stuff, anymore.....I HAD to have it! lol! So, I picked it up today, and created this for the challenge at the From the Heart Stamps Blog. Their challenge runs a bit different than others I have played along in: if you use the Stamp of the Month (February's is this image I used), you will receive the following Stamp of the Month free to play along with next months challenge! How cool is that?!

I grabbed up a bunch of scrap dp to create the little collage, a piece of stashed ribbon, and my Stampin' Up punches made my stars. I used my Print and Cut feature on my Silhouette machine to create the bird cut-out, after I colored him up in PSE. I added some pop dots to the stars and bird, and used some glossy accents on the bird sweat and the candle. Here's a closer look at the gloss:
