"Owl"-ways Love You Much!

Good Saturday morning!

Stampin' Up! created a site for demonstrators to connect and share with each other, and fellow demos on there have started challenges.  One of the challenges is a "featured stamper" challenge, and this week's featured stamper is the talented Wendy Weixler.  The challenge has you CASE (Copy And Share Everything) a card from their gallery, changing at least two things on your card.  Here's Wendy's original..

And here's my version!

I had a lot of fun making this card!  I love to put different elements together.  I especially love to put together different stamp sets and make them work with each other!  You can see I changed a lot from Wendy's card, but still kept a lot of the elements, like a dry-embossed card front, the sentiment tag, the layout, and a punched border.  The tag is cut from the Matchbox Bigz XL die (there are three tags on there in addition to the matchbox pieces themselves).

I stamped the tree stump from the Love Bandit set on Creamy Caramel in Chocolate Chip ink, then cut it out.  The little owl is from the same set, stamped and cut out as well.  The heart is from the I {Heart} Hearts set, cut and adhered over the heart cut-out already on the stump.  I'm not sure if you can tell, but I created the grass much the same way I did in my other Love Bandit card.

Thank you Wendy for the inspiration!

(Don't tell Seth.. this will be either our anniversary or Valentine's Day card to him.. :)  Shh!)

Have a great day!
