Good Morning! After my midterm yesterday, I decided that I needed a break and so I made a few cards for Operation Write Home. One of the cards I made was for Sketch #9 on the operation write home blog. I really liked the sketch this week, as it was unlike anything I have previously done on a card. The owl came from the Inchie 'Heart Full of Love' set. Robin stamped up a bunch of these owls and we have had them around the house for a while. I thought it would be fun to use one for this challenge, although I was worried it might look too much like a Valentine's Day Card! I hope someone will use it as a general 'love you' or 'miss you' card to send home. I colored the hearts and the envelope in the stamp with various Copic markers. I punched out the pink background plain square as well as the red scalloped square using the Clever Lever Punches. Recently we have been using an old DCWV adhesive border paper pack. This paper pack has long, thin strips of patterned paper that are absolutely gorgeous! I love the various patterns, such as the floral piece that I used on the card. To dress it up a little, I used a Stampin' Up border punch to create the loops on the bottom. The sentiment is one of my favorite 'miss you' stamps and it comes from Amuse. Although the card looked nice as it was, I thought it needed something else. I decided to add three small red buttons from Papertrey Ink. I hope you enjoy it!
