O for Owl

Good Morning everyone.

Its time for a new challenge over at Alphabet Challenge - the theme for the next fortnight is:


So a good theme suitable for many occasions and any age.  I made a card for someone just starting university to wish them luck. 

6x6 white scalloped cardbase. I cut a square of white linen card to fit my base and die cut a star circle frame into it.  I then stamped the greeting.  I added this panel with foam tape onto gold glitter card and then black pearlised card and then the card base. 

I then die cut my tattered lace owl die from black pearlised card, after poking all the little pieces out I glued it onto white card and cut around the outside edge.  I then gave it a curve before adding to the card with glue gel.

Just a close up on my owl, you can pick up the gold glitter card a bit better at this angle too. 

Items Used:
Tattered lace 'Barn owl in flight' die 
Star Circle die (unbranded)
Crafters companion sentiment stamp
Jellybean champagne gold glitter card
Black pearlised card - payper box
White linen & scalloped card blank - craftUK Ltd

So if you fancy joining in and to see what everyone comes up with using Owls, hop over to Alphabet Challenge

Thank you for stopping by and wishing you all a good weekend. Emma
