What serendipity! I had just pulled out my favorite die (as well!) from the new release when I came across your posting and card using the Owl Heart set! What a fun, cheerful card--love the yellow owl! Thanks for the inspiration!! But did I miss something? I was wondering what color ink you used for the dark tree--Vintage Photo?
I also wanted to comment on the beautiful painted background card you created. It would make a very pretty wedding card. Perhaps a heartfelt owl card would be appropriate for your friend facing possible surgery? I always enjoy the unique cards you post, especially since I'm a big Memory Box fan! Can you tell I like owls too? :-)

Adorable, Donna! I love it!
