Delightful Inspiration (freebie) Week 1 and multi challenges!

Well what a wet and miserable day in Sydney, I came home from a craft night at a friends last to a world of WET in my suburb!  Peoples houses have flooded.. and they report having streams in their backyards.. apparently a lot of water hit the Blue Mountains last night and neither my husband nor myself were home to witness it!  Thankfully our house was fine!

I made this card last night at my friends house and had a different image on it.. but I went to bed and thought...hmm I think the other image I want to work with will look this morning I took it apart and tried again!  I may need to take another photo of this card as the angle makes it a little hard to see.  
The image is a free design from Designed to Delight at Delightful Inspiration, if you are yet to visit Faith at Delightful Inspiration, please do.  She does a progressive challenge and each week if you participate you get another free image.  Let her know Penny sent you.  My sketch is from Friday Sketchers, it grabbed me the moment I saw it.
Other challenges for this card are:-
ABC Challenges -New (the image)
C.R.A.F.T - Valentine/Love
Dareu2digistamp- Hearts/Valentine (the heart is a brad/embossing and the owls are the valentine)
Pile it on- No more winter colours
Bee Crafty - Romance/Love theme + Digi (i got it right this time!)
Creative Bell - Ribbons
Double Dutch - Be my Valentine
Pollycraft challenge blog - things with Wings (how perfect was the timing of this challenge with this image!)
Creative Card Crew - Valentine's
La-La Land Crafts - use Hearts
Charisma Cardz - I love you
Belli Challenge - Ribbons

I know this isnt a traditional Valentine's type of card, but I am really not a Valentine's type of girl.. so two owls sitting on a stick together is my compromise and hey the hearts and loads of pink has to help right?

thanks for stopping in!
