Whoot Whoot

This is a leaving card for a friend in work ... she's heading off for a new job in York University, thus the owl!  ('The Plum' is a nickname for her home town in case you're wondering!)

I used lots of Paper Smooches goodies on this card ... the Hooties owl set, alpha set and the wee arrow die too.  Coloured with promarkers and stickles added to the owl's beak and feet.
Owl popped up on dimensionals, also the green cloud.
Dienamics cloud die; Taylored Expressions scalloped border die; not sure of make of corner punch.

Paper Smooches SPARKS - anything goes
Passion for Promarkers #242 - so sentimental
Simon Says Stamp Monday - journey
Layout from Sketch & Stash #136
The Cutie Pie Challenge #66 - cute with dies and punches
Allsorts #253 - no flowers

  12. What a wonderfully whimsical card! Its bright colors made me happy and I really like how you incorporated the cloud theme so brilliantly. They're in the background, but you also used them as the focal point for your sentiments, which I thought was very clever indeed. Love the patterns you combined and that owl is just too cute! The Baker's Twine was the perfect bit of texture to finish the whole thing off. Really stunning piece and I'm so glad you shared it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
