Owl Be Yours, Valentine!
My little owl Valentine card was inspired from this post by Julie. I used a little owl from PTI's Wise Old Owl, as well as the saying, "owl be yours". I used a pink marker to color my Spellbinder's heart die before I ran it back through to emboss. I really like that little pop of color it added! I also like it's imperfect/distressed look, which blends nicely with the background paper I used. I'd seen this technique done, but never tried it before -- it's an easy/fun detail I'll definitely be using more often!!!
