HOO loves you?!

Here is a little card I made today for my husband, Corey - I'll surprise him with it when he gets home from work. The owl was cut with my new Slice machine. What fun - he's paired up with the new A Muse Modern Wood Block stamped and embossed in white.
When you look close I backed the owl's beak and eyes with A Muse shimmer paper in Mango and Espresso and then enhanced his eyes with chocolate pearls. I thought that the owl was a little plain so I inked my Open Zinnia stamp with distress ink and stamped his belly. Gave a little subtle "faux feather" texture.
