Hoot, hoot...

I made this card yesterday for a dear friend who had surgery, a breast reduction. I have loved this owl from the Cricut Happily Ever After cartridge ever since I saw someone post a card made with it. I finally got it and this, of course, was the first image I used from it!

The printed paper and the green paper are Basic Gray Sultry, and the pink and brown papers are Bazzil. The brown grosgrain ribbon was bought from Taylored Expressions. The pink & green ribbon is from the dollar spot at Target. The brads are from a package of pearlized mini brads that I got from Stamper's Dream. The white dots and faux stitching were made with my white Signo pen. The card base was cut using my design studio and a cut file from Capadia Designs.

I just couldn't resist this caption inside! Very appropriate, huh? ;) The owl stamps here on the inside are from Hero Arts, stamped with white pigment ink and then heat embossed. It's going out tomorrow, and I can't wait for her to get it.

Thanks for stopping by!
