I'll Owl-ways love Echo Park, My Mind's Eye, and My Pink Stamper

  I made this card for my sweet friend, Leeanne, who celebrated her birthday last week.  She and I love owls (you know I had to use polka dot paper!)  I knew I wanted to cut this particular owl from one of my newest Cricut cartridges, so I went in search of papers.  I chose my two most-favorite paper companies:  My Mind's Eye and Echo Park.  I was actually crafting this with my sweet friend, Court.  It was she who suggested I put him in a tree (rather than a branch), to pop-up his tummy and wings, and add i-Rock pearls to the hat.  Isn't fun to create with friends?  (Product links in my supply list.)

  I am entering this at Order of the Opus Gluei:  Owl Always Love You challenge.

Supplies:
Cricut cartridges:  Straight from the Nest owl (p.30 cut @ 3"); party hat (p. 63 cut @ 2 1/4"); Plantin Schoolbook oval (cut @ 3 3/4")
paper:  My Mind's Eye Lime Twist "Charmed" Ric-rac Paper; Echo Park "Victoria Gardens":  Garden Pond, Cheerful Words, Wild Rose/ Bluebird, Garden Gate, and Sunshine
stamp:  My Pink Stamper "Punny-licious"
other:  Imaginisce i-Rock tool and pearls

Happy Thursday!

Your friend is going to love this - I really like all the extra touches (such as the woodgrain of the tree, the depth of layers on the owl, the texture of the pearls on the party hat, etc.) that make it WONDERFUL!

Such a great interpretation of our Opus Gluei challenge, I'm so happy you came over to participate with us!

You're hilarious. Stop giving me any credit for ideas! You come up with ridiculously good ideas on your own and I basically just encourage you to follow them! But this is such a cute card!
