"Owl" Be Yours

This card follows today's SCS sketch. I've had this "owl" set for a while now from October Afternoon. I don't even know what it's called, but that means it's been neglected. My mom was an owl collector when I was a kid, so this card reminds me of my old house and all of those owl collectables that she had. Just the other day I downloaded and printed Papertrey Ink's downloadable try before you buy paper. You can find this right from their home page. This sketch was the perfect use for it. I cut it into strips and adhered it to Very Vanilla, then mounted that to the Chocolate Chip card base. I stamped the owl with Timber Brown Stazon onto Very Vanilla c.s, then matted it onto Kraft and a Chocolate Chip square scallop. I tied on some chocolate twill ribbon and stamped the sentiment onto Kraft c.s. and punched it out with the Word Window punch. That's it for today. I'm hoping to get more things added to my etsy shop. Be sure to check it out!
