Whooo Loves Ya? (CYP)

Another Monday...another fun challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenges. This week, our theme is Make It Cute. I can't wait to see what you come up with when you play along. I used this sweet little owl guy from 2 Cute Ink called Owl You Need is Love. He looks so huggable. I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils and cut him out with a Spellbinders Jar Labels die. Vintage Photo Distress ink and faux stitching were used to emphasize the shape.

The background was cut from DCWV's Safari stack and matted with hot pink cardstock. Sheer ribbon was wrapped around the brown layer before adhering it to the matting. Another length was cut and knotted before being adhered onto the right side of the ribbon band. Two sizes of hearts were traced from a stencil onto red cardstock, fussy cut, and inked around with Walnut Stain Distress ink. White highlights were created with a white Pentel paint pen. These hearts were adhered on top of or below the image layer before it was popped up on foam dots.

To complete the card, the sentiment was computer generated, cut out, and inked around with Vintage Photo DI. A wonky heart button was threaded with pink floss and adhered to the knot of the tied ribbon. I think this card follows the cute theme. Mind you, Mr. Owl gave me a massive head start in that department! Be sure to check out the Craft Your Passion Challenge blog to see the major "cute-ness" achieved by the rest of the DT. Come and join us by linking up your own creations. I hope we have a total Cute-fest. Thanks for your visit. You make me smile when you do that :)

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create ~ #12 Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time ~ #156 Use a Digi
Drunken Stampers Challenge ~ #120 The Birds

Life is good; so is art.
