Well-dressed owl...


What a lovely day it has been today - a public holiday for the Royal wedding and what a beautiful wedding it was! I was preparing for a workshop tonight while watching and I came up with this card... I used the sketch from this week's Card Patterns layout:

I thought it was about time I broke out my owl punch - new in the mini catalogue - I don't know why it's taken me so long because it is SO fabulous! That little face is just the cutest thing and it is so easy to make with the new punch. I gave him a patterned waistcoast with some 'gold buttons' (brads) to dress him up a little. The branch was punched using the 2-step bird punch. The sentiment is from Party This Way (probably my favourite birthday sentiment in the catalogue - so useful). I picked up the Pumkin Pie from the waistcoat by adding a scalloped layer behind the Early Espresso DSP (from Botanical Gazette in the mini catty) and a bow with Pumpkin Pie satin ribbon. The wood-grain DSP in the background is from Woodland Walk.

That's all for now - hope you have a wonderful day wherever you are and whatever you're doing!

Love your beautiful card! I wish I had time to watch the wedding - I had to work and just when the best things happened there were the most customers! Thanks for joining us at Card Patterns this week!!!
