Framed owl

Good Morning!

We are on a warming trend. I woke up to a balmy 10 degree and a wind chill of only -3. We did get about 3 inches of snow overnight, but not as much as what was predicted.

Today's card is made using the Framed Friends that was released by Gina K this month.
The paper is choc chip cs, DCWV textured cs(this is the orange) and the dp is K & Co Ab Lotus mat pad.
I used the Owl stamp for this card. I stamped him, yup he's a boy today, on the pure luxury 80 lb cs with versamark and heat embossed using fine detail black ep. I stamped him a second time on the K & Co dp.
I colored his face and the frame with koh-i-noor pencils and oms. I used doodlebug glitter for wing (orange), beak (orange) and the branch (brown). I paper pieced his eyelids, body and feet, and used crystal lacquer on the eyes, nose and wings. The sky behind the owl is water coloring with the sakura glitter pen.
The owl is matted on what is my attempt at making a medallion using Martha Steward's checkerboard border punch.
The sentiment is from Gina's Punchy Word stamp set which I punch with the SU label punch. I love how the sayings from this set fit in that punch and how well the punched label fits in the smallest spellbinder's double ended tag.

The card background is the K & Co dp and the distress stripes embossing folder.
I used Choc twill pieces looped through the medallion and attached to the choc twill strip down the side with brads. Kind of looks like a flag...maybe a little?

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
