Birdie Love Valentine Card

Hello and thanks for stopping in!  Today, I used a sketch to make a Valentine from everyday stamps.

Click on photos to enlarge.
I colored my bird with alcohol markers and then covered him in a thick coat of glossy accents.  When it was dry, I trimmed him out.

I used a Valentine paper pad and some hot pink cardstock to make the card look the part!  The little hearts were confetti from a party that I saved.

Supplies:  Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Fashion Warbler, small, Unmounted Sentiment Sheet 3, Memento Jet Black, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Ranger Glossy Accents, Gina K Passionate Pink cardstock, Pebbles Yours Truly 6x6 paper pad, Spellbinders circle dies, Avery Elle Wonky Rectangles die.

I would love to play along with the following challenges:
