Sunday Owl.

Morning,hope you're enjoying the weekend. Today's post is quick and to the point sharing the card I made last night to congratulate our daughter on passing her college course




She's mad on owls so I googled Owl colouring pages and used it as a template to decoupage one from My Mind's Eye and Crate Paper scraps.



A bit of snipping and stamping,inking and doodling and the banner was created to hang from the hand cut tree branch.


A few foam pads,a frame cut to fit and the card's complete.



I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
2 Sisters 49,Anything goes,
Word Play Weekend 10,Wild Animals,
Aud Sentiments33,Make you smile,
Craft Us Crazy 13,Anything goes,
FBC56,Go wild.
Thanks for stopping by,
Catch you later,
Julie.x
