Pink Paislee, Vintage Moon (OWL)


I know not everyone is loving the owls that seem to be so very popular right now but I LOVE them!!! This one is from the Pink Paislee set, Vintage Moon. My friend Melanie came over last week and we got to play for a while. She of course made a whole book while I made 2 cards but that's okay :) Can't hate a girl for being so dang talented! I honestly am not sure which paper I used for the background but it's one of those 2 sided ones that you can't decide which side you like best! hehe Anyway! I went with the brown polka dots and am happy with my choice. I stamped the limb which normally has these flourishy things on the ends but I stamped red hearts instead and covered them up so it would be more Valentine-ish. I stamped the owl twice and popped the top one up with foam squares and added some little googly eyes. Melanie had this stamp set with the journaling box so I stamped that and then stamped the sentiment (which I came up with... LOL) with my CTMH alphabet (well, one of my many!!!). I wanted the word eyes to be more prominent so I outlined it with a marker. Finally, I added the scalloped edge with ribbon along the bottom and stamped a border along the top with a stamp from a Technique Tuesday set that my friend had with her as well. Thanks, Melaine!!! hahaha

super cute card! I followed the link to your blog from SCS. I grew up in Hudson, NH, and live in PA now. It's fun to find other bloggers from where you are originally from. I always think, "maybe someday I'll find someone I actually know".
