You Are My Heart

While I was growing up my mother owned a pet store.  Consequently I had some unusual pets to care for and/or keep depending on the circumstance.  "Peaches" was my favorite...an inquisitive, noisy and very loving...love bird.  I recently discovered that love bird courtships are quite a ritual and result in a life long relationship.  Valentine's day is the perfect time to celebrate these sweet little birds.

I created this card for a challenge at Splitcoast  Stampers.  The challenge is to put your words "down under" in honor of Groundhog Day.  I wanted to feature my words in a sun.  I had a few "boo-boo dead ends" along the way so this card kept evolving.  The white layers are popped up with foam tape so I could get my words properly down under ;)
