Owl Always Love You

This card is for a friend of mine to give her husband for their first wedding anniversary.  They are Polish and their surname has something to do with owls, so they love anything with owls on, making this cute Beccy's Place image perfect for them. This digi is one of Beccy's fabulous freebies, you'll find it here if you want to download it for yourself.
 As always, the image has been coloured with Promarkers.
I've used some old Papermania papers and some lovely, DCWV foiled kraft card, added a ribbon and a bow, then die cut lots of leaves from kraft using Spellbinders dies from my Fall Foliage set, inking them with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  To finish off, I've added a good scattering of assorted gems in warm, autumnal colours.
