4 You

In the July issue of Cardmaking and Papercrafting, I got a free paper stack with some really nice paper.  I really liked this pink paper so I used it for the background for this card.  I also got free ribbon to go with it.  I didn't want to detract too much from the paper by adding too much.  So I stamped, embossed and cut out a little owl from Hero Arts set 'Four Stylish Owls' (LP131).

And then the cutest thing .... I punched out the teeniest tiniest tag you ever did see and stamped '4 You' (Stampin Up Tiny Tags) on it.  Then spent quite a long time making a teeeeeny hole and threading a piece of cotton through so it is hanging from the Owl's wing.

Quite hard to get a close up.  And cutting that owl out carefully without chopping off his legs and antenna wasn't easy but he's so cute, you just gotta be careful.  I coloured him in with distress marker Broken China, using my waterbrush

And after all that effort, I signed and then stamped this on the back

And if you love that stamp, you can get it at Catslife Press.

Thanks for stopping by ....
