Owl Love

It feels good to be back to crafting after being sick for a week, then on vacation for a week.  This is what I made today.
 The card is 4 1/2"x6 1/4" and I used white cardstock for the card base.  I cut some red cardstock at 4 3/8"x6 1/8" and some white cardstock at 4 1/4"x6" and adhered them to the card base.  I then cut some red and white polka dotted paper at 4 1/8"x5 7/8."  I cut some red glittery ribbon, matted it with some white cardstock and wrapped it around the top of the polka dotted paper.  I adhered all that to the card.  I stamped my image, which is from Whipper Snapper Designs, on white cardstock and colored it with Prismacolor colored pencils.  I matted it with some red and white cardstock.  I stamped my sentiment, which is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, on white cardstock and matted it with some red cardstock.  I adhered them both the card and added x-mas red Stickles to the heart of the image and around the edges of the sentiment.  I also added glossy accents to the owl's eyes.  I used George and Basic Shapes to cut both my hearts.  The red one is 1 1/4" and the smaller one is 1."  Both were cut using the shadow feature.  I embossed the white heart with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I adhered them together and used pop-dots to adhere it to the card base.
I made this for the following challenges:
