“Heartfelt or hearty congratulations”?

The word “heartfelt” means, “strongly or sincerely felt”. The word is normally used with expressions of sympathy.  For example, it is quite normal to hear people say, “heartfelt condolences”, “heartfelt sympathy”, etc. I haven’t come across the expression “heartfelt congratulations”, though “hearty congratulations” is quite common.
