Red Heart with an owl

Hi, there!
 On Jan. 18th, after my winter vacation, I restarted my work.
And finally today, I could be back blogging. :)
So I introduce you my Valentine's card that I made last Wednesday -Oh! A week has already passed. - for participating in Hero Arts January challenge round 2, and Caardvarks 'Red Heart Challenge'.
And this is for my father, going to have an operation on an internal disease in this February.

Here is the card.

And this is the detail around the flower. 
I like to make flower petals curl to use glitter glue, because it's so easy to get the effect for non heavy weight papers.
So I cut out one flower motif from 'Heart and Flowers' stamp image, and used Ranger Stickles and Distress Stickles, after slightly colored with Copic Markers.

Stamp used:
HA Owl / B4951
HA Cling Stamp Ledger / CG138
HA Cling Stamp Heart and Flowers / CG159
HA Clear Design Everyday Sayings/ CL342

HA Kraft notecard, Chatter Box PP, Bazzil Basics CS
Tsukineko / Brilliance Moonlight White, Copic markers, color pencils
Tim Holtz Idea-ology / snap
pearls, jute cord etc.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
Have a beautiful week!
