Holiday Owl

I'm back because it's time for another fun sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is the lovely Cecile Ribon.  When I saw the striped background on her sketch (see below), I immediately thought of this Reverse Confetti die, which I extended slightly to suit the image more.


This cute little owl was quickly colored and then cut with my Scan n Cut.  The card base was stenciled with a snowfall stencil and then I added the die-cut background with liquid glue.  The sentiment was white embossed onto black and finally I added the little owl with foam tape.


Thanks for popping by.  I hope you'll check out the cards made by the rest of the DT.

I usually buy these cuties for a friend, Karren, but this set? MY Christmas gift!
You've given him the sweetest perch - and were spot on with your use of that darling stripe-y die!
