Owl Valentine's card with a serendipity background

What a cute little layered felt ow!! My sister gave me six of these cute little owl embellishments.  They had been glued to clothes pins so I simply removed them.  Well, simply might be an understatement - they were pretty well attached and it too some coaxing to them off whole!!  I thought he would work very well with this serendipity background.  He needed a branch so I die cut a tree using the Tim Holtz tree die and trimmed off pieces until I was happy with how the branch looked.  I mounted my background to a navy card, added the black branch then glued my little owl sitting on the branch.  I colour printed the custom greeting "Owl always love you!!" , trimmed the ends and added to my card using a bit of 3D foam tape in the middle and double sided tape on each end.   Love how it turned out!!  It doesn't necessarily have to be used for Valentine's because there are always times when we want to tell our special someone that we really care for them.  Looking forward to coming up with fun designs for the other five!!
