Have A Heart... Valentines Card

Hello, today I'm sharing a Valentine  I made for an exchange at LOVE handmade...Flickr Group 
I've also entered it into the Die Cut Divas January Challenge-Anything goes

For my sentiment I used the lovely new Quietfire Design Stamp -Have a Heart That Never Hardens.

I always like to add some thing up-cycled to my projects and for this one it's the bird die cuts.
In the photo below you can see how many I was able to cut from just the flap of an envelope. I received the envelope during a recent card swap and it is a pretty copper colour and has a nice weight to it, perfect for die cuts. :)

I heat embossed the birds for a more harmonious colour match.
