Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!!
I wanted to share this card I made for my husband using the Parrot image, and then I typed up my own sentiments in the Word document for printing it all.

I've actually had this image colored for several months and waiting for me to make it into this card.  I knew I wanted to use it for this card, he just has this adorable look on his face!
I hope the card doesn't look too girly.
I think I lucked out with the Hello Luscious patterned paper... LOL, I didn't have that paper pad when I colored the image.
A close up of the coloring.
Here's what I did for the inside.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit!  Hope you have been inspired to go create something with heart!

NO, it doesn't look to girly and the plaids make it a little more masculine. It's a beautiful card. I use to have birds growing up and through college...so I have a thing for birds and the "beach"..lol Again, beautiful card for your husband.

He's fantastic, Laurie! You've inspired me to get him printed and use him. He's been resting in my computer for far too long without use. :-D
