Owl, Owls and More Owls and an award!

I have gone a little owl crazy lately! The SU! Owl Punch is so cute and there are so many things you can do with that cute little owl! Expect even more owl cards to come!

This is another birthday card for the little socialite! It also fits a few challenges, which is nice. It will be entered into the Nature Challenge, over at A LA Card Monkey, the April Showers Bring....challenge at So Shelli, the Anything Goes Birthday Challenge over at Birthday Sundaes, and the sketch is the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 111 over at the sweetest thing. I always love Karen's sketches.

I made my card rectangle rather than square, only because I have yet to purchase any square envelopes! Must get on to that.

Here is my card.

It uses Pink Pirouette cardstock and some retired DSP. The Owl is punched in Crumb Cake cardstock and decorated with Basic Pearls. The branch was punched with the 2 Step Owl Punch from Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I used the Eyelet Border punch for the circle. I punched some strips and snipped them at small intervals and stuck them around the circle.

Here is a close up of the details.

The recipient loved her card, which was nice.

On another note, I woke to some lovely news on the weekend. My candles card won The Cream in Our Coffee, honourable mention, badge over at The Playdate Cafe for the Colour Challenge #74. Here is the card and challenge inspiration again.

And here is my badge!
It always seems to be the cards I'm not sure of? Maybe because I push yourself out of my comfort zone? Oh well, thanks for voting for me ladies! I am honoured.
