Today's card is based on the MFT sketch from last week. My dad collects owls so I chose to use the cute image from Owls & Bluebells and a sentiment from An Owl for All Seasons, both of which were illustrated by Stephanie Fizer. Now I actually have one Father's Day card done an entire month early!
Last Saturday was (inter)National Scrapbooking Day and it's quite a big deal online, especially in the digital scrapbooking community. I admit to having a teensy addiction to saving digital freebies, especially cute paper designs, and I had printed out this particular paper ages ago to use in a card for my dad. The hoopla surrounding iNSD reminded me that I hadn't used it yet! lol It wasn't easy to find colored cardstock on hand that looked good with it, so I ended up choosing grays.
For the heart embellishment, I crumbled it up to distress it and pressed it on my inkpad to add texture. Then I added some color with my copic markers to bring out the color of the patterned paper and the flowers in the main image.
