Owl Carrying Heart Anniversary

Hi all.  I recently bought this fun Stamping Bella image of a cute owl with a heart in his beak and a heart shaped present in his talons which I thought would work well for anniversaries, and so I used it on this card.  I also bought an Impression Obsession square Heart Frame die (249-Y) and both are being used for the first time here.

I made a simple card by dry embossing the heart die using a piece of white card and cut it out before adding it to my 6" square card.  I then stamped the owl using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink, and coloured it with my Lyra Graduate Pencils and fussy cut it and added  it over the top using Pinflair Glue Gel for a bit of dimension.  I finished by stamping the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink and heat embossed it with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.  

Thank you for dropping by my blog today and I'll see you again soon.

I am entering the following challenges:
