Be Mine card

I am posting this card to participate in the January-February Card Sketch challenge over at The Craft's Meow. I had recently won the Happy Owlentine's stamp set from them and I just purchased one of her Grab Boxes that was loaded with goodies.  She still has Grab Boxes left for sale. You can check it out HERE.

This is the sketch for the challenge:

Here is my version of it:

Everything I used on this card was from The Craft's Meow Grab Box or was the Happy Owlentine's Stamp set.   The only thing that wasn't is the Stickles Glitter glue and the Liquid Pearls.  Oh, the ribbon was from my stash.   I cut the brown circle from my Elegant Edges cartridge at 3.75 on the "shift" level and the white circle was cut at 3.50 without the shift.

Here's a close-up:

I stamped the owl/arrow image all in red but I didn't like the way it looked when I was done. So I stamped the image again in brown ink on the same background paper and then cut it and paper-pieced it over the red. I really am pleased with the way it turned out. I colored in the heart eyes in red and put a little Stickles glitter glue over them and also over the arrow.   The felt flowers needed a center and I chose the White Opal liquid pearls.  I inked the edges of the card base and the papers in brown Studio G ink. 

Thanks for looking. I'd love to hear your comments.
You can also participate in this challenge up until February 14th.
