Sending Smiles Card

This past week flew by! Unfortunately I had migraines three days in a row and they zapped all creative energy. I'm feeling better today, so I made this Sending Smiles Card just in time to enter the Inky Paws sketch challenge. I'll be sending this card to Wild Heart Ranch a rescue and rehabilitation group in NE Oklahoma. They have been very busy with over 500 baby animals in their care. They take in all kinds of wild animals: deer, owls, rabbits, possums, raccoons, eagles, beavers, foxes, bobcats, squirrels, etc. I really enjoy following their stories and have great admiration for their cause.

The owl on this Sending Smiles Card is from the Sending Hugs stamp set by Newton's Nook. It was colored with Copic markers and then die cut with the coordinating dies. The floral paper is from the Family Ties paper pad by Pebbles and it was matted to Dapper Denim cardstock by Stampin' Up!. Some retired Island Indigo twine was added and the focal area was adhered with dimensionals. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.

  5. Cute card! Love the patterned papers! Thanks for joining us at the Inky Paws Challenge!

  6. What a wonderful place to be rescuing these animals as you've described. I love the tiny floral background with this cute little owl. The way you've done the border with the fishtails is a really nice design detail too. Also like that the owl is at the side instead of the center. I never think to do that! TFS & Hugs

  7. Andrea: I really like the color and patterned paper mix of this card and especially the wise owl feature! Great!

  8. Glad to hear you are feeling better. Love the color palette you chose! This is such a sweet card and the sketch works so well for it.
