Playing Along with OWH

You may have noticed that I was a hostess for one of the OWH challenges but being out of town most of the weekend and having a very busy week is not conducive to being able to play along with the challenges. I thought I would play this evening but my daughter called and asked me to go shopping with her so it didn't work out. But I did squeeze one in last night and one tonight. So without further ado...
This card actually uses the OWH Sunday sketch challenge:

It's a very simple card. In hind sight I wish I had embossed the brown background piece. You know what they say, hind sight is 20:20. It's a little plainer than I intended. Any suggestions what to add to give it a bit more pizzazz? Besides OWH, I am also entering this into Beccy Place challenge. The owl image is from Beccy's Place. I just love it with the sentiment and so perfect for OWH.

My second card is for VCMP Challenge #1.

I added the one inch squares in the pattern from the sketch but decided to add the heart in the middle since I used the "You melt my heart" sentiment from a Gina K stamp set. The sentiment is embossed with white embossing powder. Then I used the snowflake embossing folder over all since it was supposed to be a winter theme. I am also entering this card in Hiding in my Craftroom challenge of freestyle.

That's it for tonight but stop back tomorrow for the newest Doodle Pantry release. It's a little later than usual but it will
be worth the wait!

I think your card is great just as it is Donna, you did a wonderful job matching the patterned paper with the colours in the image. I also like that you used nice neutral colours in the background. Well done!
Cheers,
Beccy

The owl card is just adorable. Besides an embossed background, I have no suggestions. The focal point is the sweet little couple and I love the sentiment. So very cute!
I love that you added the inchies then embossed your card. What a great effect and of course the heart is just perfect to go along with the theme. TFS!
