Owl card


Can you believe September is half over? OMG! The summer flew by and now the fall...I am definitely not ready for winter so I hope we have a very long fall season! LOL!

Today I would like to share a care I made for my husband for our anniversary. I was rather happy with myself because I used paper from my scrap pile. Hehehe...
I finally had a chance to use Gina's Owl Always Love you set, well the images instead of the sentiments anyway. The window on the card was punched with a Marvy scallop rectangle punch and the scallop rectangle Nestibilities on the green. I embossed Leafy Branches and tried to sand them but I found out rather quickly that the paper did not have a white core so the leaves are just a little bit lighter.

I used the leaf border punch along the bottom. Don't laugh but this was quite challenging! Now you would think that lining the area up on the pattern provided would work perfectly - Not for me. I had to actually turn the punch upside down and line the paper up that way. I added the green paper behind the leaf border to cover up one sorry looking border! LOL!
I used Old Paper distressed inks around all the edges.

Here is the inside. I used my Copic markers for the coloring. What do you think of the stripes on the owls? After I added them, I wasn't sure if I like them or not.
The heart is from the set Just so Hippy.
Thanks for stopping by!
