Wisdom of an Owl

     This is my second post of the day.  If you're looking for the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies post, please click the link or scroll down one post.

     It's Friday again and that means another new challenge at QKR Stampede.  We always have an "Anything Goes" theme so there's no reason not to enter.  For my card today, I saluted all the graduates with this "Graduate Owl 16911" image.

     I colored with ProMarkers and gel pens, then framed the image with a left over, negative, die cut (Spellbinders), meaning the die cut part is the plaid paper, not the white image.  I inked the edges of the frame before applying it to some pumpkin colored CS which then went onto the card front.  The sentiment was printed, hand cut, and applied.  I added faux stitching and a bow and called it finished.
