Made it!!!!!

I'm back!! Here is a card I made using one of the new sets out of the Stampin' Up Summer Mini
catalogue. I love the owl. Using the card pictured in the catalogue as inspiration, this is what I came up with. Hope it doesn't look too 'cheapy', if you know what I mean.

OK, recipe.....
Stamps - Love Owl-ways, Daisy Field wheel
Ink - Chocolate Chip
Cardstock - Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Notebook DSP, Soft Sky, Summer Picnec DSP
Accessories - Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Real Red, Chocolate Chip markers, Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, large and small oval punches, Stampin' Pastels, Dimensionals

Thanks for looking and hope you like my owl.
ETA: Revamped my owl. Using Summer Picnic DSP I paper pieced the hearts, dimensionaled some and glued others to represent fallen flowers. Thanks to Jean for telling me that the bottom of the card looked too flat. I wasn't sure about it, thought it looked to Kindergartenish. Thanks Jean. I think it looks heaps better now.

Hi Leigh, me again!!! yes the paper piecing and more little hearts have certainly added some "oomph" to your card - I am happy that you are happier with it now as I know you love that cute little bird!
