Kraft and white anniversary card

I am finishing off my family cards for January with this anniversary card.  I decided to use the current Technique Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers as inspiration - kraft with white embossing and a bit of colour!!  I am really happy with how it worked out.
I stamped the heart (SU) using white pigment ink on my kraft card front and then embossed it with white embossing powder.  I stamped the birds (SU) on a strip of kraft using the same technique.  I added some watercolour - brown to the birds and red to the hearts.  Afterwards, I added some faux stitching using a white gel marker.  To show off the image I layered two strips of white border punched (MS) cardstock behind the kraft.  I added a layered embellishment - a white felt heart and a little decorative paper die cut adhered to each other using a white button brad.  I added this embellishment to my card using the brad.  I will be using this card for an anniversary!!
