Love Birds Card

Here's a new card I made for this week as Card Captain of the enjoyMichaelStrongstamps Yahoo Group.
Cream CS for the card's basis
Shiny light bronze paper, punched using Martha Stewart's Birds on a Wire edger punch
Recycled cream mulberry paper with gentle embroidery on it
Michael Strong's Cloisonné Heart Stamp (large)
Michael Strong's Punch & Spell Alphabet Stamp Set
Gold EP
Oval Large Nesting Paper Punch 1.5 x 0.75 inch by EK Success
Light turquoise half pearls
The heart
I stamped Michael Strong's Cloisonné Heart on white CS, heat embossed it with gold EP and cut it out using TH scissors.
Then I colored it with ProMarkers: I used Bright Green, Pastel Blue and Vanilla.
The heart was glued 3D with foam tape for extra dimension.

The word LOVE
I stamped the letters L O V E from Michael Strong's Punch & Spell Alphabet Stamp Set on white CS, heat embossed them with gold EP and then punched each letter out using the Oval Large Nesting Paper Punch 1.5 x 0.75 inch by EK Success.
Then I colored the letters with ProMarkers: I used Mint Green and Vanilla.
Each letter was separately glued 3D with foam tape for extra dimension.
I also added a few light turquoise half pearls for some glam.
