Card challenge - loved up!

Here is the card I actually finished making last night. I think I am going to title it 'Love Doves' and it is going to be entered in the black and white challenge from craftycardmakers and the love challenge from C.R.A.F.T.

I backed the inner fold of an aperture card with papermania paper, and then stuck a sheet of acetate over the aperture. Onto this I stamped some love birds that I got free with a magazine, using black staz on ink. I filled in the birds with a white glitter glue pen, and added some white extra fine glitter to increase the opaqueness of the birds. I then stamped a bird onto the top left and cut away the corner around the stamp, and stamped a sentiment to the bottom right. In the other corners I added some self adhesive pearls, and I also added some around the edge of the acetate.

Here is also an update on my fish. Only an extra half hour on them, but every little helps!

I decided to have a go at quilling - for my facebook group - but I am not sure it is going to turn out quite as it should.
This is just the first stage of the design, but you should be able to tell what it is going to be and I do not think that you can!
