I used a couple of challenges to make this card - the layout is based on the sketch from CAS - Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#55; rather than use actual rectangles on my card, I've suggested them with the owl and sentiment. The colours are from last week's Colour Q - cQc219 challenge. I absolutely adore owls and when I saw the Colour Q graphic with that sweet owl, I knew I had to use my new owl dies.
Making the owl was really easy. I cut the base layer and main image in Chocolate Chip and then cut three more of the detail owl in red, green and kraft and then simply paper pieced! He's just so gorgeous. I cut a mat layer of design paper in kraft and stamped the sentiment directly on to this. I mounted the owl with dimensional tape. For the inside I cut a mat layer in brown and on the white layer added a fun birthday sentiment, adding a touch of colour to the open letters. I think this is a fun birthday card!

If not, enjoy the season! We're taking a short break over at Addicted to Stamps and More!, but will be back with a new challenge in January.
Winter has arrived in force in Northville. You saw the photos I posted yesterday showing the drive before and after clearing. Well, we've had a bit more snow - a light dusting overnight which was cleared quite quickly and for which I got a thanks from the UPS delivery guy! And this afternoon a very light dusting. I'd like to think that's it for now - I'm fed up of snow! And on that note - bye! See you tomorrow.
