Something "Precious"

This one isn't for a challenge, but I just had fun making it. I had a sheet of Precious Moments glitter stickers and decided to make something "soft" with it. These stickers are also dimensional.

Believe it or not, this is an Ivory card base. The Linen stamp (SU) inked in Pretty in Pink was stamped on the base. A piece of Pretty in Pink was embossed with the Dotted Swiss EF and cut out with a scalloped, oval Nestabilities. A smaller ivory piece was cut and embossed with an oval Nestabilities. While the die was still on the piece, I softly sponged Pretty in Pink over it. The rest is super simple and fast. This sweet little girl with her jewelry and heart shaped purse was put in the middle of the oval piece along with one of the little butterflies. This piece was then adhered to the scalloped piece and with foam tape placed on the card base. Another little butterfly was added to the top. I had a piece of sheer light pink ribbon I wrapped around and adhered with another one of the little flower stickers. I hope you like it.

My card today is for three challenges. For Sharon's Challenge, I made this cute owl card for my brother's birthday coming up soon. This one is to make a guy's card. It also fits a sketch challenge at Stamping 411. And The Shabby Tea Room #27 Challenge is to use green inspired by a lovely plant photo. I changed the layout to the side and placed the sentiment at the bottom. The inside was stamped with "have a HOOT on your birthday" and a row of leaves at the bottom. What do you think?
