Craft Pay-It-Forward...

Hello, happy Valentine's Day! I took part in a craft pay-it-forward via Facebook in January and I signed up to make something crafty for 7 people at some point in 2013. I wanted to get cracking with the challenge so I had a think/planned what I wanted to do and purchased a few new goodies - all owl themed and very cute. I decided to make a card and a little treat pack of tea, coffee and chocolate. What do you think...

The cards are more or less the same with slightly different papers and flowers. I found a gorgeous First Edition paper pad called Sweet Owl, think it was released last year but I'd never see it before. Since I bought it I've seen it elsewhere (typical eh?). I paper pieced the owls' tummies...

 This card has an additional embellie of a heart that I didn't add to the others...

 Here are the treat packs. In each is a teabag, coffee sachet and 2 mini chunks of Cadbury's chocolate.

And one on it's own...

Card supplies:
Image - Opal Owl from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Sentiment - Owl Sentiments 2 from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
Papers - Sweet Owl by First Edition
Ribbon/lace - stash
Flowers - The Ribbon Girl & stash
Other - Circle & scallop circle Nestabilities dies, brown chalk ink pad

Treat pack supplies:
Paper - Nitwitt Collections
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat
Other - Memory Box Precious Heart Box die, Die-namics Mini Wavy Pennants die, DL cello bags, ribbons

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
