Whoots in the House



I haven't used owls in a long time but I was in a scrapbook store Friday that had Art Impressions Whoots. I thought they were so cute and had to have them. Unfortunately, as I was coloring my lightest Copic was almost dry, therefore the splotching on my little guys. Ugh! But, after all, owls can have splotchy looking feathers.

I am doing a case of a card on this week's Featured Stamper at Splitcoaststampers. Here is her card.
I liked the sketch and that is what I went with. The card I am case-ing belongs to Jeanne aka akeptlife.

The owls are stamped, colored, cut out and popped on a circle piece of burlap. I found this fun My Mind's Eye paper pad at Michaels Arts and Crafts and it had embellishments to match. Love that.
I added a grosgrain ribbon and stick pin to finish it.

The inside sentiment reads: Another Birthday...it'll only HOOT a little!

I'm entering the Allsorts challenge blog-Wk #215-Fur and Feathers

Was für eine niedliche Karte Benzi! Es gibt so viele Details.
Mir gefallen die Papiere, und die süßen Eulen sehr gut. Eine tolle Idee, auf den Sackleinen Kreis die Eulen zu setzen.

Liebe Grüße, Carmen
