O is for Owls

Today I want to share my love of owls.  I think owls are very interesting creatures.  They have big bright eyes and are night lovers.  I think that I would be very happy as an owl.
When I think of owls, I think of cute little creatures that I use in my classroom.    I use OWL's to stand for Outstanding, Wonderful Learners.  I like to call my kids OWL's because it is a positive encouragement.  I also like to decorate my classroom with all the cutesy owls.
So, let me share my card.
The base of the card is created with Whip Cream and Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock.  I then took a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock and stamped with the largest brush stroke from the Brush Stroke stamp set, in Beach Breeze Ink.  I stamped the brush stroke, from the bottom to the top of the card.  I adhered this piece to the card base.
I then wrapped Beach Breeze Thread around the card and tied a bow towards the bottom.
I die cut a Journey circle from Whip Cream cardstock and adhered it to the card with foam squares.
I then die cut  the vine two times from the Border Details with Lemon Grass Cardstock.    I adhered these pieces to the card, making sure one overlapped the oval, to make a branch for the owls to stand on..
Next I stamped the large owl and small owl from the Hoo-Ray! stamp set (on sale this month for 30% off) on a scrap piece of Whip Cream Cardstock using Hazelnut Blend ink.  I detail cut them out and added them to the card with foam squares.
I then stamped the flower in Lemon Drop ink on Whip Cream cardstock from the Sweet Today set (also on sale this month for 30% off).  I detail cut the flower out and adhered it to the card.
To finish the card, I added a few Journey Sequins-Blue Skies and some Journey Glaze to the owls eyes and flower center.  Enjoy!
