Hoo Loves You More Than Me???

You may have noticed a little difference on my blog today?? I changed the background color. I suddenly felt like the dark blue was depressing!?!? Maybe it's because of the winter darkness - so I changed it to the lighter green - not sure this is what I want, but I'll stick with it for a while to see if it grows on me!?!?!

Here is my card for today's color challenge on Split Coast - to use So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy & Handsome Hunter. This is a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 card that I cuttled with the Argyle folder.The hearts are nestabilities. I paper pieced the owl with some Stampin Up Argyle designer paper and added google eyes. This cute little owl sitting on his leafy branch is from the My Favorite Valentine set by H&M Stamps. The ferns on the sentiment and heart are a Martha Stewart punch. The heart and sentiment are popped up on foam dimensionals.
Well - I have to run - it took me a couple of hours to get this card together and DH is starting to look for supper!!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you again tomorrow!
