For my card today I used one of the super cute stamps from the set " Love and Hugs" by Whimsy's newest Illustrator, 2 cute rubberstamps.

  I colored this cutie with my Faber Castell Pencils.

The border was done with a new to me border die also from Whimsy, the double scallop border die. 
Papers are from my stash, i think the pink is by My Mind's Eye, a 6x6 pack purchased at Hobby Lobby. Thought the owl would look cute sitting on a branch, so I created one  by simply adding the flourish made with whimsy's vines die. 

Sentiment is part of this cute set. I used an oval SU punch to cut it out and layered it onto a choc. chip oval for some contrast. 
I added a little flower shaped button with some twine and then sewed around the edges to finish it off. 
Well, and that is about it. Hope you liked it!

A few challenges I am playing along in:
