a little birdie...

Edit: This card is the Featured Layout at 2Peas today! YAY!

HI!

Quick post....I made this card for Lucy's Challenge. Perfect timing....my neighbour just had a baby girl!!
Today is a grey, gloomy rainy day and no matter where I took my pictures I couldn't get a nice, clear shot!

this one was taken inside



This is a trick I learned from Lucy...I stamped the owl stamp on the back of the pattern paper and then cut it out. I inked the eyes and beak only and stamped on the owl.





this one was taken outside




Gotta run...........if you have time to do an extra challenge this month I've got one going...check for details here.

materials - stamps (Hero Arts, Basic Grey, Unity) pp (digi-Jennifer Pebbles-Ice Dots), string, my handmade buttons, cardstock, versamark dazzle, glitter gel pen.
Pin It!
