Owl Greetings

For this card I combined three different challenges: Merry Monday, Mojo Monday and The Color Throwdown.  I love the Aviary stamp set and have always wanted to use it in a Christmas card but never have.  I think this owl is just the cutest thing!  I was able to use the Bitty Banners Framelits to cut out my little red flags.  I tried to use a pearl pen to add a little extra pop around the scalloped circle, of course my practice pearls came out nice and the real deal came out like black blobs.  Oh well.


Stampin' Up! Supplies:
Stamp: Aviary, More Merry Messages
Ink: Crumb Cake, Real Red
Cardstock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Garden Green, Real Red
Framelits: Bitty Banners
Extras: Embossing Folder/Scallop Circle Die (Sizzix); Black Pearl Pen (Viva Decor)

Merry Monday #55
