I purchased a stamp set with the owl the other day and of course had to try it out immediately! I also just received my new leafy branch Cuttlebug embossing folder in the mail...and....of course had to try IT out right away as well. I really have to stop buying so much...it's just so much fun, though! OK...back to the card. The play on words just sort of popped into my head as I was stamping the owl. I thought I would start my card using the sketch from Our Creative Corner. My next step was choosing colors, so I tackled the black, white, and red challenge over at Little Paper Shop. The rest of the challenges are listed below. I cut the white border with my MS punch. I then embossed the red with the leafy branch. The ovals are nesties. The "love" is cut from Home Accents and the "owlways" from Storybook. I topped the card off with a ribbon and some diamond stickles.
Here are the challenges I entered this in:
Our Creative Corner - sketch
Stamping Vacation - Pick 3 (black, white, with red; black card base with black ink; stamped image with eyes)
Incy Wincy - red with black
