Next Holiday Please!

Well, another Christmas and New Years'  have come and gone. Hope your holidays were happy ones! Now that the presents have been unwrapped, the stockings have been "unhung", etc, I wanted to get started on cards for the next holiday - Valentines Day! Fortunately, Sally-Ann has some great new Valentines images in the DigiStamp Boutique store. My youngest daughter *loves* all things owl, so I chose this cute little guy from the Simply Valentines A4 - Cute collection. I don't have a lot of Valentines papers, so I decided to use one of the Heartfelt Papers along with a great little stripey print from the Wintertime Coffee papers set.


Brown and pink is one of my favorite color combinations and this image is just perfect for it! Other supplies include ribbon (Michaels), fake "Dew Drops" (Michaels), Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen, kraft cs, pop-dots, brown CS (PTI) and Ranger's Glossy Accents. I admit that since I bought those Glossy Accents, I've been having fun finding excuses to use it. It's such a quick and easy way to add texture to your card! I put some Glossy Accents on the hearts - you can see it a little better in this closeup:


I love the sentiment that comes with this little owl. So sweet and it made putting the card together that much quicker and easier!

I'll see you later this week with another DSB card. DigiStamp Boutique is sponsoring the Totally Papercrafts challenge this Friday! :)
