Anniversary Card / ESS Sketch #33

My wedding anniversary is this week and I needed to make a card for my darling husband. :) This year, I decided it was going to be a stamped card; and it was going to have owls!!! :)

I knew I wanted to use the Eat Sleep Stamp ESS Sketch #33, where Tracy Clemente gave us a simple sketch and encouraged us to take it to another level and not to be shy - a clean canvas to be creative was the perfect inspiration for this card! :)

I picked out the Hero Arts Whoo Loves You, for the cute little owls with hearts, the tree trunk with hearts and for the sentiment that perfectly said it all!

This card was also inspired by Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog, where we were to use 3 Flowers, 2 Buttons and Ribbon/Fibber/Lace. These elements were FUN to incorporate in my card!

This owl is so CUTE!!! Those heart buttons were a great find at M's during valentines and I'm glad I found a use for them. The Martha Stewart punch is perfect, love the scallop hearts with the dainty little holes. I also really like the heart motif reapeated throughout this Hero Art set, makes for a card that is all {heart}!

Thanks for stopping by!

1st of all, happy anniversary! it is a darling card...i guess it is not new to you that i "heart" this HA set, too?!! love that set!!! those owls are tdf! i must tell you that we're on the same wave length with those dress it up buttons...i bought the same ones, they were the last 2 pkgs at m's during valentine's season, and hoarded them like crazy, and just found more today in the doll dressing section...they're on sale 2 for $5 (i'm in canada, so yours will be cheaper)...so i stocked up on some more heart buttons...and in different colours, too! i love how you used the ms punch x1, dp and colour scheme...methinks he will "owl-ways" love it!!!!!! fatastic job on tracy's sketch challenge...it's adorable!!! TFS:)
