Owl in a Tree

Wow, time really does fly when you are so busy. Once again I have neglected my blog. My daughter is getting married 3 weeks from today and things are pretty busy at my house right now. I needed a masculine birthday card and this is what I came up with. I used Papertrey Out on a Limb and the owl is from Unity July Kit of the Month. I love that owl! I stamped and then used the rectangle nestibilities to cut it out. While it was still in the die, I used a color duster to apply Ripe Avocado ink. I did the same thing with the ribbon tag die. I used the outline leaf stamp to stamp the background in ripe avocado on the same color cardstock. The sentiment is from Birthday Basics.
I wanted to decorate the inside a bit, so I stamped the same branch and leaf as the front and added the sentiment from Birthday Basics.

Supplies:

Stamps-Out on a Limb, Birthday Basics (Papertrey), Its the little things (Unity)
Paper- Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado, Kraft (Papertrey)
Ink-Ripe Avocado (Papertrey), Burnt Umber (Palette)
Accessories-rectangle nestibilities, ribbon tags (Spellbinders), Dark chocolate twill ribbon (Papertrey)
