Vintage Owl Masculine Birthday Card


Some new rubber on the table from my SSS win.  :)  It's Friday night and I feel alright!  So quickly playing to enter the latest Simon Says Stamp challenge, we've got your number.  I used the new IndigoBlu numbers background stamp - swoon - and a PaperArtsy tiny numbers stamp for my background.


The background was made with a mix of Distress Oxides on kraft.  A little faux stitching around the edge.  The foreground panel was regular DI.


I thought this Carabelle Studios own was THE coolest.  I am a big owl lover, but don't like to tell people because they think I love all owls.  I don't.  Just way cool ones like this or very retro/vintage owls.  Anyway, I framed him by cutting out a Seth Apter die around his face, and then inking it with DOX.  I added a few cogs to fill the empty space.  I thought this sentiment would be fun for a birthday and stamped it with $1 tiny alphas from Michaels.  It feels so good to get messy after some CAS work.  LOL!  I'm so all over the place - I know...  Anyway, I hope you like this and are inspired to play along.  Happy weekend!
