Hetty will announce the winner next Sunday (Feb 10th 2013) on her blog.
It is a circular blog hop, so wherever you start from, you will see them all.
This is the card I made - Owl My Love.
It was made for my DH, who's my true Valentine and the love of my life.
Today is a very important day for us.
We're ending a long, difficult journey, and hopefully we're starting a new time, more relaxed and happy.
I hope I'll have more creative moments from now on, and I plan to blog, to share, and more… stay tuned!

First I layered the papers on the card.
I used the BirdBranch Die, and cut off the bird to use only the branch.
I colored it using ProMarkers.
Then I stamped the Owl and heat embossed it with Black Sparkle EP, to give it a shiny effect (look at its close-up photo).
I cut it with nail scissors and colored it using ProMarkers.
The sentiment "Owl My Love" was hand written by me.
Both the Owl and the sentiment were glued 3D for extra dimension.
Finally, I added the pink heart, to add some glam.
