There are a lot of cute images in this stamp set, but I couldn't wait to color in those birds!   I started by using the large heart die to cut a heart in the center of a white piece of cardstock (I saved the resulting stitched heart for another use since I only needed the negative here).   I embossed the piece with an embossing folder from WRMK.     I placed the die cut piece of cardstock over a 4.25 x 5.5 card base and lightly traced with pencil inside the heart so that I knew where to stamp my image on the card base.

Once the birds were stamped, I erased my pencil line and colored the birds with Prismacolor pencils.   I adhered the embossed piece to the card base with foam tape.  The sentiment comes from two sets - Years of Cheers and Holiday Smooches.  I like how colorful this card is, but yet the white on white gives it a little bit of an elegant feel!
