You're a Tweet-Heart!

Hello!  For today's card, I wanted to use some of my new stamps I got at the convention.  At the Endless Creations booth, I purchased a branch and a cube with 2 little birdies, one facing each way when stamped.  Yes, I already have branches, and birds, but I couldn't resist a couple more!  I knew I wanted to make some Valentine's Day cards, so going with that theme, I decided to add some hearts hanging down from my branch.  I remembered there was a Hero Arts set with a sentiment that might work and it so does!  "You're a Tweet Heart" is perfect.  But, at this point I wasn't sure where I was going to add my sentiment.  And then ... the light bulb came on.  I recently die-cutted some clouds out from a friend's die, so I added the sentiment to one of the clouds!  So perfect!  What do you think ... here it is!  Enjoy!

 

I don't know if you can tell in the photo, but I added Stickles to the hearts.  And around the edge of the clouds, a line of crystal glitter.  I love the look of glitter, but I don't often use it.  It loves me and no matter how little bit I do use, it just stays on me, even through showering, for days and days!  Oh, how about the cork, I added?  Another fun element to this card.  I love it!
