Happy Valentine's Day

First, I'd like to say Happy Valentine's Day to all of my friends. Hope it is a fun day!
Today I am sharing a fun and non traditional Valentine that I made for my grandson. He's seven and not the frilly, lacy Valentine type. He does like to see the peacocks at the zoo though.
I started with a piece of design paper from my stash. I loved the color as a background for my peacock. I then die cut a heart from a piece of Heartfelt Creations design paper and adhered it to the background. The peacock, an outline sticker, was then layered over the heart. I used distress markers to add a little color to the peacock. My sentiment and the stamped heart are both from Quietfire Designs Rubber Stamps.
I am entering my card into these challenges: Bloggers Challenge -- use two designer papers; Our Daily Bread Designs -- non-traditional Valentines Card; and Mark's Finest Papers Simple Salutations -- Valentine's card.
Note: prepared my blog post in time for Bloggers Challenge. However, I had to go and assist my father's leaving the hospital and adjusting to being home, so I didn't get to link to the challenges until today (Saturday)

Oh I love your non-traditional Valentine. I'm sure your grandson loved it. The gold for the peacock just makes it pop against the background heart. Thank you very much for sharing with us at MFP's Simple Salutations.
