Adorable Owl Baby Card

Good evening! I hope you had a lovely weekend. We are still waiting for cooler weather to arrive here in Oklahoma but each day it gets a little closer. I'm looking forward to the big "cold front" to move in. Until then... the heat is my excuse to play in my craft room. The card I'm sharing today is one that took me over two hours to make. I'm not a speedy crafter and I kept changing things which didn't help. This Adorable Owl Baby Card is my result after being inspired by a baby bath towel I found at a specialty gift shop. It had a blue swirled fabric edging and featured a cute brown, green and blue owl on one corner. I immediately thought it would make a cute card. I used my Cricut machine and punches for the various size circles. The owl was made using the owl builder and bird builder punches by Stampin' Up!. Punches and die cuts are a great way to use up scrap pieces of card stock. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
