This card is made from using a plain 8x8 card blank and free papers and stamps by Woodware that came with the papercraft essentials that arrived this morning and they are gorgeous , spotty satin ribbon , flowers and card candi .
I used a heart die and labels die that i coloured in with aspectrum noir pen , stamped the owl image onto the same papers that i used for the base , cut them out and pieced them together .
I hope that you like what i have created here they were both quick makes when i had the urge to craft , all good though as it means that my mojo is now back off its hollibobs !
