More From the Heart

Here is another one from the newest monthly mix - From the Heart. I based my card on this week's sketch challenge but I switched it just a smidge. I have the hardest time with of-kilter panels! The neat freak in me just wants to straighten them up ;)

I think this little owl image is adorable. In the balloon are actually the words "it's your day" but I took them out for this card. In their place I added the small heart from the So Much Love set. All of the panel edges are sponged, and I handstitched the yellow panels on with multicolored brown thread. For an extra embellie, I added small brown buttons.

It's back to working on Christmas stuff for me today - I forgot about a set of cards I need to make for someone, and I haven't wrapped the first gift! I feel like I have so much to do!

Materials:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Creamy Caramel, Old Olve, Barely Banana
  • Stamps:LAD From the Heart, So Much Love, SU Antique Cracked bg
  • Ink: Old Olive, So Saffron, Close to Cocoa
  • Tools: SU edge punch, copics, paper piercer
  • Accessories: thread, buttons

So cute! Love that weathered background and the fun substitution you made inside the balloon! All that hand-stitching is my FAV part!
