Lovey Dovey Owls

Hi all! I'm just popping in to quickly share a card tonight. I have a bit of a cold (I'm blaming it on the shoveling yesterday) and need to find my bed earlier tonight than usual. ;)

I actually made this card a couple days ago! I did a couple of fun things with this one: added a flower I crocheted and covered a plain chipboard letter "U" with a bit of craft paint (heat set) and some sparkly fluff (used 2-way glue pen to adhere it). For even more texture I added a bit of ruffly ribbon trim behind the main image and added Frosted Lace Stickles to the itty bitty hearts. I think this card has found a permanent home in my card stash. Hee hee!

ETA - For those of you who would like to crochet your own flowers. HERE is a link to the pattern that I used for this flower. Enjoy!

And most importantly, the layout is from another fabulous sketch by Jen del Muro which you can see HERE. Although this time I did not change it around. :)

Stamps: Heart Owls (Hero Arts). Paper: Garden Variety designer (Cosmo Cricket), Marigold Morning, Old Olive (SU!), white (PTI). Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Always Artichoke Craft.
