Digi Haven DT Card - Love, Cherish, Adore

Hello digi lovers, we have a new challenge for you at Digi Haven, this fortnight our theme is "Love, Cherish, Adore" and we're sponsored by A Day for Daisies.  The DT were lucky enough to be given a romantic image to play with, I chose these pretty love birds, which I paper pieced with Prima, Sunrise Sunset papers, and coloured the branch, feet and beaks with Promarkers.
 I used Distress Inks in Wild Honey and Scattered Straw to stamp feathers round the bird using Artemio stamps.
The sentiment stamp is from a Personal Impressions set, I thought that it went well with this image, it's a lovely set with slightly more unusual sentiments than the ones you see every day.
To embellish, I used lace, ribbon, a bow, flowers made with a Nellie Snellen punch, flourishes made with a Marianne die, pale peach pearls, and a few pink gems.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
