A Valentine for Rocky

 Today I have a card I made to send one of my nieces and her family.  They purchased a pretty parakeet a few months ago and so I thought I'd send him a Valentine!

I recently received the parakeet stamp and die from PTI/Ink to Paper - it had been sold out but they restocked a couple of weeks ago. (now the die is out of stock but they have the stamp set)  It's the only parakeet stamp and die I've ever seen.  Of course, I wasn't looking before my niece purchased Rocky, but I have looked since.
I popped Rocky and the hearts up on foam dots and drew the strings on the hearts with an 01 Micron Black Fine line marker.

I'm linking my card to:
I used the top row - Die cut, Animal, Scene

I was inspired by the bird and the branch
