I needed to make a card for a teenaged boy in our congregation. We will be his Confirmation sponsors for the next two years.
Since I didn't have a starting point, I headed to this week's inspiration site, Tadenberg to see what might catch my eye... Decided to use the colours in the inset photo as my inspiration. I've used Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. A few of the colours are a bit off in the photo - that decorative label punch looks almost black but it's the same colour as the branch! I've seen several Owls sitting on Branches scattered throughout the gallery lately - not sure who to credit for the layout but it made for a quick card!
First card using my Owl Punch ~ sure makes punch art easy! A little sponging here and there; a top note die-cut for the message on the inside...
Catch you later. Gotta go pack! :)
PT: 5 punches; 1 die-cut

Wow, Izzy, getting ready to go away on a cruise has got your mojo on fire here. Maybe you should do that more often!!! I've loved all of your recent additions to your gallery, and this one is no exception. Awesome inspiration piece!! Pretty colors and an adorable owl; perfect all around for your confirmation protege :)
