Owl You Need Is Love

My dad was the inspiration for this card.  He has a thick Spanish accent and when he sings this song, I swear it sounds like he is saying "owl you need is love."  I was looking at the Hoot n' Holler cart and I remembered my dad's recreated verse :)

Make sure to visit the Link up the love event over at Getting Cricky. You still have time to enter your Valentine's Day project. 

The card base is from Accent Essentials.  I took two of these shapes and welded them together. 

The sentiment was computer generated and I cut it out using My Creative Time's Build-A-Banner dies. I inked the edges using my brand new Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spun Sugar.  It's so pretty! 

The eyes that came with this owl were all weird.  I ended up using the owl punch from SU! to punch out the eyes.  It looked much better.  I finished it off with some twine bows and stitching.

What I used:
My Creative Time: Build-A-Banner set. 
Accent Essentials: Card Base
Hoot-n-Holler: Owl
Twinery: Pink Sorbet
Papers: SU!
