Blue 'Sweet' Heart

It looks like I am getting back into the swing of things this year, even if I'm not up to top speed yet. Hopefully it won't be too long before I have a card to post nearly every day.
Today's card is for the Spoon Full Of Sugar Challenge where the theme this week is HEARTS. There are Hearts galore on my card - but you will need to look at the inside to find the sweet element.

I thought I'd make a male Valentine card, but I think this one has ended up being a little too 'fussy' for a man. Well, you know what they are like. On the inside I've added the 'sweet' element of the little birds.
Here's an 'artistic' shot of the heart on the front. I was trying to show the layers and the curving of the sentiment.

Once again I've made my own backing paper using a mixture of heart stamps.
Hope you're all having a good week and that those of you in the UK are keeping warm in the snowy weather.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
