Surprise Blog Hop for Susi!

Hi everyone, and welcome to Susi's Suprise Blog Hop! First off I want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUSI (aka sillyshysushi on YT)! This Blog Hop is in your honor, and I hope you enjoy the wonderful projects that all the talented ladies created with you in mind. I myself I'm super excited to share and see what all the ladies created too, since we all tried to incorporate owls into our project, your's and my favorite!!!! So super excited, so lets get started!
I created what I consider a super cute Valentine's Day card using one of my favorite techniques at the moment, using micro fine glitter. Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I thought I'd start the festivities early, I mean, it's your birthday, and we're partying already, so why not, right? lol
LOVE the micro fine glitter, because once applied it looks, and feels like smooth velvet on your card. It is just stunning how the glitter is there, yet it is not all flashy and crazy like some glitter can be sometimes lol. The entire owl is done with the glitter and I love it.
Of course you recognize the owl, it's a Stampin up punch, and yes, I used all those different colored glitters to put this little guy together. A little tedious because of the small pieces, but, oh so worth the work. Just look at this little guy!

I used some MFT dies (Decorative Doily, and the Faux Crochet border), paper from Authentique---the Uncommon Collection, a Tim Holtz embossing folder for the woodgrain look in back of the owl, the Owl punch from Stampin up (the small hearts came from that punch as well), and finally a Hero Arts stamp for the sentiment. Coordinating cardstock is from Bazzil.
I hope you all enjoyed the project (specially you Susi), and I encourage you to keep on going through the line up of all the talented ladies participating on this hop. Here's the line up:
