Happy Saturday! The weather here in Virginia is beautiful. The sun is shining and there is a slight breeze in the air. I have to work this evening, but only for a few hours. Today's card follows, believe it or not, five challenges. The layout is based on Mojo Monday's Week 85 Sketch. The High Hopes Challenge, #29, this week is heat embossing. I don't believe you can tell in the picture below, but I used a Versamarker, some clear embossing powder, and my heat gun to emboss the heart. Over at Cafe Mojo, the challenge is to use stamps - easy peasy for me! Challenge #50 over at A Spoonful of Sugar this week is Touchy Feel. I figure the flowers, ribbon and embossed heart takes care of that. And last, but not least - we're asked to use brads or eyelets for challenge #31 at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. I realize the owls' colors are a little out there. I had the card all laid out with another image, but when I went to put it together, the image was much too big. Instead of scrapping the whole card/idea - I figured these cute owls would work. I like their uniqueness. The complete recipe for the card is below. I haven't finished the inside so I only have a picture of the front to share today. Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a fabulous day.
