You Make my Heart Sing!

This week's challenge over at Bitten by the Bug was to use the owl cut from the Happily Ever After cartridge. The solid paper is SU, DP is Papertrey, and the music paper is vintage. I distressed the edges with linen ink from Ranger. I hand cut the branch from corrugated cardboard. The leaves are also hand cut and inked. I added a pretty felt flower tied with satin ribbon (also from Papertrey), and a little pink Doodlebug flower. I placed the sentiment inside due to lack of room! (It says appropriately enough, You Make My Heart Sing!)

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I know I got lots of planting done! (And have a throbbing back because of it!) Only in Chicago can it go from 75 degrees on Saturday, to 50 degrees on Sunday! It's nuts I tell ya!!!
