I was not going to do the challenge today...I really wasn't--but I read it and had an idea so I had to play.
This was a quick card--gotta love that!!! I was inspired by a cup my kids got at Halloween last year so I wanted to try it out.
The owl is a sneak peek stamp from a new line from Gina K..it will be available at www.stampingfreak.com on tuesday. I know the artist so I got to play with them early.
The background is brayered with mustard ink. I punched a white circle and brayered with summer sun and then edged the sides. I adhered it to the cardstock and then drew the tree. The owl is stamped and colored in and I clear embossed him..He is popped up on dimensionals...added the ribbon and matted the card...whola!!! Done.
The stamp is actually a birthday stamp--I used the sentiment that goes with it "Hoos Having a Birthday" and just inked the first word to place around the tree.
Thanks for looking!
