Valentine's Day is coming and I decided to start with my card for my Mom. I went to a cardmaking event last Saturday and made a little owl card that gave me the idea for mine. I decided on my card I would add two more layers and enlarge my card as well. I dug out the Stampin' Up More Amore paper that I bought but did not get a chance to use for my patterned layer and then matched it to the Cherry cardstock in my stash. My banner uses two banner flags punched from the More Amore paper, and the other banner flags were stamped with Strawberry Slush ink (SU) using the Banner Blast SU stamp set offered in the current 2014 Sale-A-Bration promotion currently in progress. I also decided my owl was definitely a little girl, so she gat a bow for her head made from the bitty hearts on the owl stamp using the More Amore paper. I made a duplicate little owl to place on the inside to dress up the verse.
