Owl always love you! - HH Challenge #17

This weeks HH Challenge is to make a card using a sketch created by the very talented Katharina. Check out the High Hopes Challenge blog to see all the Gorgeous creations by the HH Diva Team. Join in this weeks challenge and you could win some Fabulous High Hopes Stamps!!!

On this card the High Hopes stamps I have used are...."Love Birds" - "Branch" and "Owl Love You" sentiment. I think these owls are just the Cutest......Hubby will get this card for Valentines Day...mainly because when I was making it ....he saw it before it was finished and actually commented on how cute it was. He's a Sweetie!!

I used prismacolor pencils (oms) and twinkling h20's to color the images.

The owl, branch and sentiments are all popped up on foam dots.

I used scalloped nesties for the heart and CBugged the heart and white layer with the Swiss dot folder.

Paper - GP white, prima marketing (romantica), kraft cs

Ink - versafine black, creamy caramel

Accessories - metal clip, charm, iridescent ice, jute, stitching, brads

We've been having some nice weather for a change this last few days....getting geared up for another cold spell again though. It is nice to see that the daylight hours are getting longer....makes me feel like spring is right around the corner.

I hope everyone is having a Fabulous Weekend!!...Thank you all So Much for your Lovely Comments!!
