Feeling Crafty Challenge #25

Welcome to challenge #25 at Feeling Crafty Challenge. We had a fabulous response to our previous challenge - Butterflies- with so many wonderful cards and projects. Thank you to all of you who took part. The winners will be announced on the blog shortly.
The theme this month is
"Dies and/or Punches"
and is being sponsored by our very own lovely Avril Watson. She will award a prize of Memory Box dies to the lucky winner so make sure you enter. Your entry doesn't have to be a card. Any recent crafty creation that fits the theme will be accepted.
As it's Valentine's Day this month I thought I'd make a topical card.

I started by covering an 8"x 8" card blank with Kraft card. I printed out a paper I've had for a few years, that I think came from Create and Craft, and used a Docrafts Scallop border punch on red card for the top and bottom of the card. I printed the sentiment on the computer and hand cut it into a banner and mounted it onto a matching Kraft card mat. This was fixed to the card after shaping using glue at the ends and foam pads in the middle. 

The scalloped heart die is from Docrafts. I removed the center and added a hand cut bird made from Kraft card and red card.

I punched out some large hearts from red card and Kraft card. The small hearts are waste from a Memory Box die. I finished the card with self adhesive pearls.
