Happy anniversary card

Been having the worst imaginable week, and look what came in the mail to brighten my day!! A stash full of Hero Arts goodness:-) This is for my Fresh Face win from the previous Hero arts monthly challenge. I am totally in love with these stamps, and today's card is made with both the woodblock stamps I received..
I was a pleasantly surprised with extra catalog that was included, now I can look at all the stamps and drool whenever I have some free time:-) tee hee

This card was made for my husbands parents anniversary:-) Don't you think the stamps arrived just at the right moment?.... perfect for this card.

I first stamped the wood grain on some white card stock, then ran it through the Cuttlebug, I then took a brown piece of card stock and ran it again using a larger die.

I stamped the owl on more scratch white card stock coloured with Copics and then cut them out.
The little flower has been glittered in the center and petals coloured in with a bright magenta:-)
I also added a little shadow beneath the owls to stop them looking like they were just floating on the wood grain!

I then used the Label die 6 and cut out the card base and assembled the card using some demensional adhesive sandwitching the ribbon.

Here's a closer view :-) The hearts and the beak have been embellished with Glossy accents for some added interest.
